Want us to come and speak to you or your staff about cyber security? Our Cyber Crime Unit can do that!

Lincolnshire Police’s Cyber Crime Unit offer free advice, guidance, and a range of services to ensure you have the basics in place. Our team have a wealth of knowledge and experience in dealing with cyber investigations and in how to protect yourself, your business, or your organisation, from the threat of cyber criminals.

Our Cyber Awareness sessions help you and your staff understand why cyber security is important and shows how to take practical steps to protect against fraud and cyber crime. If you are a business, organisation, charity, or educational setting then our team can help.

A selection of training materials are available and can be tailored to your needs whether that be a virtual session via Teams or a video presentation. We can talk about a whole range of topics including current threats, how to spot phishing emails, why password security is important, staying safe at home, social engineering, device security and much more.

Your officers belong to the National Cyber Protect Network which forms part of Team Cyber UK. They can access National resources and are up to date with the latest guidance and threat assessments released by the National Cyber Security Centre.

Cyber Protect and Prevent Officer Harry Lancaster said: “All businesses, organisations, charities and schools can benefit from understanding cyber threats and how best to protect business data, money and reputation.

“To gain optimum benefit from the input, we recommend scheduling 40 to 60 minutes, but this can be adjusted accordingly. If you’re a business or a school we can tailor the session to your organisation’s needs regarding timing, content and focus on topics that may be a risk to your business, community or network.”

According to statistics recently published by The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) four in 10 businesses (39%) and a quarter of charities (26%) report having cyber security breaches or attacks in the last 12 months.
