Covid-19 Related Cybercrime and Fraud

Wed 22 Apr 2020

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic there has been a noticeable increase in cybercrime and fraud.

The way in which we are living our lives has changed significantly, we are communicating with one another in new and different ways, and we are engaged with agencies and organisations which we may not have been before.

For these reasons, it is important to be vigilant, especially where personal and/or financial information is being shared, to ensure that you don’t become a victim of a scam.
