Cybercrime and fraud now account for more than half of all reported crimes – and worryingly, even despite the fact that it’s significantly under reported! Our sessions benefit anyone who uses email, internet and smartphones/tablets/apps.  This particular session is aimed at local councillors and leaders – but council staff are most welcome.  There will be a further session aimed more towards administrative staff on Thursday 21st March at 10:00am.
