City of London Police launch new initiative to fight cyber crime


The City of London Police have today launched a new initiative to make the Square Mile more secure from cyber-attacks.

Cyber Griffin will see specially-trained officers lead a series of community focused exercises which will include threat briefings, incident response training and more.

The initiative is targeted at businesses within the City and aims to reach those with very little knowledge of cyber-enabled crime threats, all the way up to individuals who hold IT security and risk roles.

As cyber crime increases and more online attacks are launched on UK businesses than ever before, officers in the force’s Cyber Crime Unit felt a community-based approach to tackling the problem was needed.
