Cyber security event

Dorset Police, in partnership with Get Safe Online and OPCC, hosted a cyber security event at the Dolphin Centre, Poole, giving advice and information to help keep local people safe online.

The event took place in the Dolphin Centre, Poole on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 June 2017.

Many people brought their devices down and discussed online safety with the Deputy Chief Constable James Vaughan, the PCC and experts from Get Safe Online, banking experts, Action Fraud and the Dorset Police cyber-crime unit. 

Cyber-crime prevention officer Jake Moore said: "If recent events have taught us anything it's that cyber security is so important. We spoke to hundreds of people and gave out over 4000 leaflets to the public with information on how to stay safe online. "

The Commissioner said: "Jake’s role was introduced as part of my pledge to continue to educate communities in Dorset about the dangers of cyber-crime and the steps they can take to protect themselves.

“I’m pleased to say Jake has been doing a fantastic job, spreading the message of cyber-awareness to businesses and communities across the county. This was another great opportunity to make the most of Jake’s expertise, alongside a host of knowledgeable partners.”
