Peterborough & Cambridgeshire`s Police and Crime Commissioner, Jason Ablewhite, is joining forces with Cambridge Community Safety Partnership to host a cybercrime conference in Cambridge today.
Supported by Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridgeshire Constabulary and Cambridge City Council, the conference will address the growing threat of cybercrime and what people can do to protect themselves.
Police Commissioner, Jason Ablewhite said: “Cybercrime is on the increase and while it might be perceived that cybercrime is a specialist crime that requires a specialist response the majority of cyberattacks could be prevented by implementing relatively easy steps to protect yourself and your devices. Whether you are an individual doing online banking at home or a small/medium-sized business operating on a larger scale, it’s our job to keep you as informed as possible and to help you take the steps to stay safe and avoid falling victim to a cybercriminal.”
Speakers include network security and computing expert Adrian Winckles, Senior Lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University, Detective Superintendent Lorraine Parker, Chair of Cambridge Community Safety Partnership; Andrew Little from Get Safe Online, and Rebecca Tinsley, Cyber Security Advisor from Cambridgeshire Constabulary.
The conference opens at 5pm and runs until 7pm and will be held at Anglia Ruskin University.
