These problems aren’t going to go away, and it’s therefore vital that we develop a clear understanding of the issues facing Surrey so that the Police and our partners can better protect our communities.
On 17th November, Cybersafe Surrey (the initiative funded and run by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner to support professionals and practitioners in protecting our communities against cybercrime) is launching a survey to help us understand how cybercrime is affecting local people on a day-to-day basis.
The survey will give us a snapshot of the types of cybercrime residents are falling victim to, and help us gauge the extent to which people currently protect themselves online. It doesn’t matter whether someone has been a victim of cybercrime or not – we want to hear from everyone.
The data we collect will form part of a new Local Cybercrime Profile, which will be made freely available in the New Year.
The survey will be available from 17th November here: http://www.surrey-pcc.gov.uk/survey
