ACPO Comment on the UK Security Strategy

The UK Cyber Security Strategy outlines proposals for how the service will continue to develop e-crime capabilities through the new National Crime Agency, as well as supporting the service through improved training to officers and staff to help combat the problem

ACPO lead on e-crime Deputy Assistant Commissioner Janet Williams said:

“Law enforcement is well aware that e-crime is a large and growing problem in the UK and the challenges for police is to ensure that we can work effectively with the private sector to ensure we have the best capabilities to tackle cyber criminality.

“Through the creation of a joint virtual taskforce, made up of partners in industry, academia, and other law enforcement agencies, we have already been able to harnesses intelligence that the business sector possesses and couples them with the investigative skills of police officers. For every £1 invested in the operational activity on the central police e-crime unit runs through a ‘Virtual Task Force’, we currently return £35 in savings – which is a sound investment for public protection.

“The UK Cyber Security Strategy today also outlines proposals for how the service will continue to develop e-crime capabilities through the new National Crime Agency, as well as supporting the service through improved training to officers and staff to help combat the problem.”
