Cyber Choices toolkit

9 November 2023

Due to popular demand, we're back with more Cyber Choices' toolkit webinars.

Do you work with young people or vulnerable young adults in Derbyshire? If so, it's likely that the majority of them will be tech savvy but, can you identify when that interest in IT becomes a concern and puts them at risk of committing cybercrime? Do you know how you can help them?

Cyber Choices is an early intervention programme, developed by the National Crime Agency and delivered by the Cyber Choices teams at Derbyshire Police and the Regional Cyber Crime Unit.

The aims of the programme are to:

  • deter individuals from becoming involved in cybercrime in the first place
  • prevent individuals from becoming more involved in cybercrime
  • prevent cyber criminals from re-offending
  • provide education on the Computer Misuse Act 1990 and the possible consequences of breaking the law
  • encourage individuals to make informed choices about their use of technology
  • promote legal and ethical cyber opportunities.

Cyber Choices provides positive role models and mentors to give young people a better chance of changing their behaviour and help them to make informed choices that will use their skills in a legal way, resulting in positive career options.

Join our community safety team, in conjunction with the police, to talk you through the Cyber Choices toolkit to help you 'spot the possible signs' that someone is involved, or at risk of becoming involved, in cybercrime.
