Briefing with Action Fraud and the National Crime Agency

The volume of cyber crime incidents affecting UK businesses has steadily increased year on year. According to the latest Cyber Breaches Survey, 2/3 of large businesses identified at least one cyber breach or attack over the last 12 months, costing a large business (on average) around £20k.

Despite these headline statements, the under-reporting of cyber attacks remains a critical problem for law enforcement. According to recent reports, only under a third of cyber attacks affecting businesses are reported to the police, despite the fact that many forces now have dedicated cyber-crime units.

This briefing, jointly delivered by Action Fraud and the National Cyber Crime Unit (NCCU) within the National Crime Agency (NCA), will highlight the partnerships that Action Fraud and the NCCU have developed to help companies report cyber crime incidents.

Speakers include:

Rebecca Bennett, National Crime Agency

Martina McGrillen, Action Fraud

James Carder, CSO, LogRhythm 

Gordon Morrison, Splunk
