Our Cyber Protect Team is here to help businesses and organisations protect themselves against the growing threat of cyber and digital crime. Cyber crime against business is largely underreported to the police. Falling victim to a cyber crime can have a real impact not only financially, but also in terms of damage to reputation.
There are a number of simple steps you can take to protect your business or organisation. We offer talks and presentations on current and emerging cyber threats and other useful advice to protect your business becoming a victim of cyber crime.
Please contact us at: Cybercrime@lincs.pnn.police.uk
For information on what small businesses need to know about cyber security, visit the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).
The NCSC was set up to help protect our critical services from cyber attacks, manage major incidents, and improve the underlying security of the UK Internet through technological improvement and advice to citizens and organisations. Their vision is to help make the UK the safest place to live and do business online.

Cyber Essentials Scheme
Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective, Government backed scheme that will help you to protect your organisation, whatever its size, against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks.
Certification gives you peace of mind that your defences will protect against the vast majority of common cyber attacks simply because these attacks are looking for targets which do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place
