Cyber Security

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.

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.
