The Protect Network
Every Police Force now has a dedicated cybercrime unit, which investigate and pursue offenders and help businesses and victims to protect themselves from attacks. Within these teams, each Force has a dedicated Cybercrime Protect Officer whose role is to raise awareness of cyber Security.
Protect Officers are your local point of contact to receive tailored support and guidance relevant to your geographical area. You can also get free access to your local Protect Officer through any of the NEBRC Membership packages.
