Cambridgeshire Constabulary and Cambridgeshire`s Police and Crime Commissioner are hosting the counties first Cybercrime conference this evening in Cambridge.
The threat from cybercrime is one of the fastest growing crime types and instances of cyber-attack are increasing year on year, both for businesses and for individuals.
The conference will provide information about what the police are doing to combat the issue and also provide some practical advice on what businesses and individuals should be doing to protect themselves.
Police and Crime Commissioner Sir Graham Bright said: Tackling cybercrime is a high priority for me but remains a challenge as the nature of cybercrime is constantly evolving in both the complexity of the investigations and the creativity of cyber-criminals. In response to this threat we are hosting the counties first Fraud and Cybercrime Conference.
The event will offer people the opportunity to meet members of Cambridgeshire Constabulary s newly established Fraud and Cyber Investigation Unit (FCIU), hear about what the police are doing to tackle this threat and what businesses in particular should be doing to protect themselves. It will also enable business to share their concerns and their ideas with the police.
