Cyber Crime Advisor Posts

Two Cyber Crime Advisors were recruited to Warwickshire County Council using funding from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner.

The Cyber Crime Advisors will be responsible for delivering the Warwickshire Cyber Crime Action Plan on behalf of Warwickshire community safety partners. Their work will be countywide, with a focus on delivering initiatives to prevent and reduce risk of harm from cyber crimes to individuals.

By mapping the scope of the issues across Warwickshire, the Advisors will be able to establish the key messages for various groups of residents, in order to successfully raise the awareness of cyber-crime. Some initiatives to achieve these goals include the training of Victim Support Cyber Champions, who will be able to offer practical as well as emotional support to any victim of Cyber Crime.
