Cyber Crime

Cyber Crime is a threat to us all and will only continue to grow, as we become more and more reliant on Information Technology. The Police Crime Prevention Academy have teamed up with the Police Digital Security Centre to offer the following qualifications that are of benefit to your staff and your leadership.

Level 2: Award in Protecting Your Business Against Cyber Crime and Fraud

Aimed at employees who wish to understand how their organisations are vulnerable to cyber-crime and fraud and what they can do to protect themselves.

Topics include:

  • Definitions of key terms – what does cyber-crime mean?
  • How big is the problem and what are the criminals after?
  • How and why are businesses vulnerable to cyber-crime and fraud?
  • What you can do to reduce your vulnerability.

Level 3: Award in Cyber Security Leadership

Aimed at employees who wish to play a more proactive role in ensuring the cyber security of their organisation. Its focus is on enabling Cyber Security Leaders to develop their knowledge so that they can help other employees reduce their vulnerability to cyber-crime. This Level 3 Award does not require the delegate to hold a team leadership or management position. In addition to the qualification, the Police Digital Security Centre (PDSC) will provide additional support to successful delegates.

Topics include:

  • Definitions of key terms – what does cyber-crime mean?
  • How big is the problem and what are the criminals after?
  • How and why are businesses vulnerable to cyber-crime and fraud?
  • What is my role in ensuring cyber security and how can I protect my organisation?

  • Tools and techniques to support your organisation.

Level 3: Award in Dealing with a Cyber Attack or Data Breach

Aimed at senior managers of organisations with boardroom level responsibility. It is centred around a simulation exercise where delegates, working together as an imaginary Board, will be drip-fed pieces of information that they will need to review and discuss before deciding upon an appropriate course of action.

Topics include:

  • The role of the Board in preventing cyber crime
  • Dealing with an incident in real time
  • Crisis Management – critical thinking and decision-making
  • Communication – when to inform customers and what you should say
  • Developing Pre and Post-Incident Response Plans
  • Embedding cyber security as a Boardroom issue.
