One of the crime issues I am seeing more and more in my casework, is a rise in fraud and cyber crime. Part of addressing and responding to this is being aware of where flaws may be, either through software and hardware or even through day to day social engineering.
Staffordshire Police aim to raise awareness of these issues and organised Cyber Champions in our workplaces.
Free training for businesses – Raising awareness of cyber safety and security in the workplace
This initiative is to embed a Cyber Champion within the workplace environment, such as a Fire Marshall or First Aider, the training is delivered by Staffs Police and Regional Cyber Crime Unit RCCU.
