As part of our ongoing #ProtectYourWorld campaign, which aims to raise awareness of online crime and encourage people and businesses to take steps to protect themselves, a number of community events and live on-line discussions are scheduled to take place over the coming weeks.

With the campaign entering its third week next week, the Force will focus its attention on advising older people on how to protect themselves from such criminality. 

At 6.30pm on Wednesday (21/9), police cadets will deliver face-to-face online safety training to older people at a care home in Reading which is open to non care home residents too. Spaces are limited and will need to be reserved in advance.

The training will cover a whole range of online and telephone scams, including identity fraud and social engineering whereby fraudsters manipulate their victims into sharing confidential information, via email, telephone calls, text messages or post.

Continuing the focus on older people, Thames Valley Police will be hosting a live online question and answer session for this target group on Thursday (22/9) at 6.30pm. Older people across Thames Valley are being urged to engage in this discussion which will look at scams/phishing with police professionals on hand to answers any questions or concerns.

Week four of the campaign starts on Monday 26 September and will focus on keeping businesses across Thames Valley safe online.

In support of this week, a free event targeting smaller businesses on how they can keep their businesses safe and secure online from cyber crime attacks is taking place on Thursday 29 September from 9am to 12pm at Oxford University.

The event will provide businesses with crucial information about how they can protect their business and staff against the latest online threats like Mandate Fraud, CEO Fraud and Ransomware.

Presentations from key experts at Get Safe Online; Thames Valley Police; Lloyds Bank; Kaspersky Lab and London Digital Security Centre will form part of this event.

Also on Thursday (29/9), a live online question and answer session targeting businesses across Thames Valley will take place starting at 6.30pm. Click here to take part on the day

If you are interested in either attending the free training workshop for older people next week or the free business event taking place the following week, then please register your interest by emailing or contact April via 101. Places are limited at both events and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
