In our modern digital world, cyber security is more important than ever. In order to support the National Cyber Security Centre's aim to make the UK the safest place to live and do business online, 10 regional ROCUs were established.
What Are The ROCU's
Each ROCU is a Regional Organised Crime Unit that possess a range of specialist policing capabilities. This includes a dedicated cyber security team that work with businesses, organisations, and communities to reduce the chances of becoming a victim of cyber crime.
This site is designed and maintained by the East Midland Special Operations Unit (EMSOU). In this ROCU, we work with the Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Leicestershire police forces and are ideally placed to support businesses, organisations and groups in need of cyber security advice and support
What Is The Purpose Of This Site
One of our key aims, is to raise the profile of cyber security within schools - developing robust infrastructures to deliver the 'Protect' and 'Prevent' national strategies. In this sense, 'Protect' means helping staff, students and parents to recognise common cyber threats and know what steps to take to mitigate them. 'Prevent', on the other hand, seeks to dissuade young people on the cusp of cyber criminality and proactively encourage legitimate and worthwhile use of technology.
How To Use This Site
This website is divided into 3 main sections:
Whole School Resources - to support the wide scale implementation of cyber security strategies and embed a culture of cyber safety
Curriculum Resources - to integrate cyber security into Key Stage 3 Schemes of Work; GCSE and A Level Specifications
Parent Information - to raise awareness of how young people fall into cyber crime and what positive steps can be taken to avoid this.
