Cyber Crime Awareness

Our workshop offers impartial, nationally recognised guidance on how you can protect your organisation from cyber crime.

We will also discuss current and future threats, and explain how to defend against these. The session will be delivered in an easy to understand format with minimal ‘tech speak’ so it is suitable for all business owners. Sam works for the South West Regional Cyber Crime Unit (SW RCCU) who investigate cyber crimes where the victim is based in the South West. Her role as a Cyber Protect Officer involves supporting victims of cyber crime, as well as giving advice to organisations on protecting themselves against cyber crime.
