Cyber crime a big issue on the Isle of Wight

Monday, February 22, 2016 - 8:22

POLICE are analysing results of the biggest-ever cyber crime survey to see how badly the Isle of Wight is affected.
There were 11,600 responses from across the region and early analysis indicates nearly one in six residents in the south-east were cyber crime victims in the last 12 months.
The data reveals that 84 per cent of people have experienced some form of attempted cyber crime in the last 12 months, with 15 per cent reporting that they had subsequently become a victim.
Police and crime commissioner Simon Hayes, said: "Cyber crime is vastly under reported, so this survey gives us a better picture of the real scale of these crimes.
"My recent substantial investment, in the development of the Forensic Innovation Centre in Portsmouth and £1.5 million in a specialist Cyber Crime Unit here in Hampshire, is putting our region at the forefront of the fight against this growing threat to both private individuals and businesses."
