Thames Valley Police is starting the #ProtectYourWorld campaign, which aims to raise awareness about cyber crime, as well as encouraging residents and businesses to take action to protect their online worlds and to make a report if they fall victim.
National statistics show that each year, an estimated one in ten adults across the UK fall victim to cyber crime.*
In the Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2017, nearly half of all businesses in the country reported a cyber breach or attack in the past 12 months.
Crimes with an element of internet or online activity accounted for nearly 50 per cent of all recorded crime in England and Wales.*
The #ProtectYourWorld campaign will run from two weeks, starting on 20th November 2017
