Govt to launch new cyber crime campaign

Govt to launch new cyber crime campaign

The government is aiming to raise awareness of cyber security issues with a new campaign that is focused on making industry take the threat more seriously.

It is part of the National Cyber Security Programme and the £4 million campaign will be led by the Home Office and try to help people avoid becoming a victim of sophisticated cyber criminals.

Security minister James Brokenshire said: "The threat of cyber crime is real and the criminals involved are organised and driven by profit."  

He explained that by making small changes to their security systems and operations, businesses and private consumers can be much more confident when using the internet.

Although the new campaign has already be announced, it will actually be launched in the autumn and will include input from the Cabinet Office, the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills and partners from the business sector.

Media and PR agencies are now making bids to help the government communicate the cyber safety message.
