Launch of YouTube channel
The Dorset Police Cyber-Crime Unit has launched a new channel on YouTube that will host a series of short three minute videos in an effort to keep businesses safe from cyber-attacks.
More and more businesses are falling foul to cyber-attacks as a result of poor security. From April to September 2016 there were 2,406 reports of fraud in Dorset, 47% of which were from businesses. Cyber-crime has the potential to affect every house and business in Dorset.
The videos will offer information and advice on a series of topics and will be available to view whenever convenient.
The Commissioner's pledge to introduce a cyber-crime prevention officer was based on the concerns voiced by community members and businesses.
This new platform will inform businesses against the risks associated with cyber-crime in an accessible and engaging way. It will raise awareness of Jake’s role and the role of our forthcoming Business Crime Champion, among those who can most benefit from their expertise.
