BBC’s Crime Watch programme will look at the role of cyber crime and its effect on the UK tonight at 21:00 on BBC 1.
Jeremy Vine and Tina Daheley return with a special episode investigating cyber crime. Alongside the latest appeals they explore the threats posed to individuals, businesses and even states by organised hackers.
The face of crime is changing. For the first time ever, this year’s national crime survey included statistics about online crime. These revealed the full scale of fraud, hacking and blackmail lurking beneath the surface of our ever more internet-dependent lives. There’s no crime scene, no fingerprints, no descriptions and no DNA. With exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the detectives taking on the cyber-criminals, Crimewatch finds out how police are taking on the invisible enemy.
Cyber Aware is a cross-government campaign, funded by the National Cyber Security Programme. They aim to measurably and significantly improve the online safety behaviour and confidence of consumers and small businesses (SMEs).
