Find out more about our cyber crime campaign which aims to encourage young people to protect themselves online
Watch our new video which highlights the daily risks and how to avoid them.
Our Protect Your World campaign aims to encourage young people to take action to protect themselves online, and to provide parents, carers and responsible adults, such as youth activity leaders, with the tools and knowledge they need to help their children stay safe online.
Cyber crime and cyber-related crime is constantly developing and takes many forms, but is essentially any crime where a computer is the target or the tool used to carry out a crime. People of all ages, in all of our communities, fall victim to cyber crime.
Identity fraud, cyberstalking, confidence scams, cyberbullying, romance fraud, hacking, and distribution of malware are all examples of cyber dangers.
But there are simple ways to reduce the risk of becoming a victim. For advice on staying safe online visit our cyber crime page.
If you fall victim to cyber crime, or experience an attempted scam, report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or visit www.actionfraud.police.uk.
