    QinetiQ Trusted Information Management is a division of QinetiQ, which until July 2001 was part of the UK's Ministry of Defence. QinetiQ, now a company wholly owned by the UK government, is currently looking for private equity investors.

    Europol analyst Ian Casewell and the UK National High-Tech Crime Unit's press officer Judi Prue confirmed to Newsbytes that their organizations sent staff to QinetiQ courses.
