‘Cybercrime affects millions of people every year and yet policing is not set up to deal with a world in which so much crime is committed online rather than in the public street. The scale and complexity of these challenges mean we need to think radically about the role the police play, how they work with others, the skills they require and the way the police service is organised.’ The Chair of the Strategic Review of Policing, Sir Michael Barber (2020)
Cybercrime constituted almost half of all crimes committed in England and Wales last year as the pandemic forced criminals to continue their offences in the digital space. With cybercriminals constantly evolving and transforming their tactics, the traditional model of policing is being challenged like never before.
Westminster Insight’s Cybercrime Conference brings together cyber experts from law enforcement, Government, criminal justice, private industry, international organisations and academia to explore how we can respond to the rapidly evolving digital nature of crime.
The law enforcement cybercrime network has expanded over recent years with the launch of regional and local force cybercrime units working in collaboration with the National Crime Agency’s National Cybercrime Unit and GCHQ’s National Cyber Security Centre. But more needs to be done to make progress in the pursual, investigation, prevention, and prosecution of cybercrime.
Attend to hear about the latest cyber threats, trends and strategies from a local level through to international serious and organised crime. Explore the role the police play, how they work with others, the skills they require and the way the police service is organised, in order to meet the evolving digital threat.
Don’t miss this opportunity to improve the UK law enforcement’s ability to protect essential services, businesses and private individuals from cybercrime.
