More information about the products and services we offer

The NECPN consists of Cyber Protect Officers within the Regional Organised Crime Unit and 3 North East Police Forces; Cleveland, Durham and Northumbria.

Our underlying aim is to reduce the likelihood of organisations and individuals in our region from becoming victims of cybercrime and provide support to those that do. We are here to assist in any way we can. Put simply, we want to reduce the number of victims of cybercrime.

The good news is, a lot of common attacks can be prevented by doing the basics. We’re here to tell you what those basics are, and a little bit more.

For individuals and families, take a look at our At Home section.

If you’re an organisation or a business; we offer advice on defending yourself against common attacks as well as how to be better prepared to recover from an attack. We offer staff training to spot common threats, 1 to 1 sessions, presentations, workshops and even offer a free vulnerability assessment. Go to our Business section to find out more.
