Cyber Crime

Cyber-crime is an ever increasing threat within the UK. The cost of cyber-crime is estimated to be costing the UK economy billions of pounds per year, and the costs to individuals and businesses are often staggering.

Details about the Regional Cyber Crime Unit in the Eastern Region Special Operations Unit can be found on the About Us page.  They are a team that works both reactively and proactively on significant cyber-crime investigations pursuing cyber-criminals.

But the team also proactively engages with businesses and communities in supporting them protect and prepare themselves against cyber-attack, as well as prevent individuals or groups from becoming cyber criminals in the first place.

GCHQ announced that 80% of cyber-crime is easily preventable, and so here in the Eastern Region we want to help realise that figure to protect our communities and businesses from becoming victims so that we can focus our investigative resources on pursuing the most serious threats.

Here you will find articles, advisories and blogs aimed at keeping you up-to-date with the latest threats, trends and methods on how to protect yourself from cyber-attack.


Cyber-Security Information Sharing Partnership (CiSP)

The Cyber-security Information Sharing Partnership (CiSP), part of CERT-UK, is a joint industry government initiative to share cyber threat and vulnerability information in order to increase overall situational awareness of the cyber threat and therefore reduce the impact on UK business.

CiSP allows members from across sectors and organisations to exchange cyber threat information in real time, on a secure and dynamic environment, whilst operating within a framework that protects the confidentiality of shared information.

CiSP members are also able to receive network monitoring reports. This free service allows users to receive tailored feeds of information from CERT-UK covering any malicious activity that we see on your network.

Users can sign up for this service when they join CiSP or register your interest and a member of the team will get back to you when you have the necessary information.

To find out more about CiSP and how to join, visit the website at:  www.cert.gov.uk/cisp
