Cyber Crime, cyber bullying and on-line safety
We will continue to focus on activities and initiatives which promote digital resilience to young people and adults in East Sussex.
Why is it a Priority?
Cyber crime is a type of crime in which digital technology, such as computers and smart devices, is used as the means and/or the target for criminal activity. Offences can include cyber bullying, cyber stalking, online fraud and theft and hacking. Crimes such as child grooming and sex offences can also be facilitated through cyber means.
Cyber bullying is the use of technology to harass, threaten, embarrass, or target another.
Crime as we know has been changing. As we’ve embraced technology and moved online, it has too, and people are now more likely to be a victim of an online crime than a traditional crime
