North West Regional Organised Crime Unit is pleased to bring you the ‘Little Book of Cyber Scams’ reproduced by kind permission of the Metropolitan Police Service’s FALCON (Fraud and Linked Crime Online) team.
This booklet has been specifically designed to offer advice to Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) on staying safe in the cyber world.
With limited resources and turbulent economic conditions SMEs may priorities innovation and growth over online security and risk. These issues are often seen as expensive, burdensome and time consuming. It is important though, that these areas are recognised and assessed and that companies are aware of the risks that they face from cyber criminals.
This booklet aims to identify common types of cyber crime and the ways you can protect yourself from them. It is not an exhaustive list, in what is an ever changing landscape, but by following the advice given, you can improve your protection of the systems and your knowledge of your staff that use them.
