Apart from investigating crime and bringing criminals to justice the Metropolitan Police Service has a duty to protect the communities and businesses of London.

This includes the cyber-space. Its Cyber Crime’s Protect team is focused on spreading cyber security awareness to Londoners to help them be better protected against cyber criminals in the first place.

This is achieved through presentations on cyber-scams and latest cyber threats, running of interactive, gamified learning exercises and other services in order to ensure individuals and businesses are aware of the ever-changing cyber-threat landscape and how to stay safe online whilst keeping their company, community and their data secure from compromise.
