Molly Steward from the Nottinghamshire Police’s Cyber Protect & Prevent team has provided NottsWatch with the following update around Cyber Prevent work (now rebranded as Cyber Choices):

We’ve been delivering inputs in local Alternative Education schools and educating them on the Computer Misuse Act. We’ve had really positive feedback from the schools, and this is something we intend to continue doing. Next term, we’ll also be doing Computer Misuse Act inputs with all of our Mini Police schools. The intention is, if we can educate the Mini Police, they can then share this information with the whole school. We’ve also got a few assemblies planned in other schools in Nottinghamshire.

We also have a Cyber Choices programme, where we are working with talented young people to help them learn more about the Computer Misuse Act and how to use their computer skills in a positive way. We work with the young people on a one-to-one basis and help them improve their skills, so they are able to go into a career in Cyber Security.
