From Rebecca Tinsley
Cyber Security Advisor
Central Intelligence Bureau Cambridgeshire Constabulary
Seeing as Ransomware has dominated the news in the last week I have attached a separate advisory which I would ask you to circulate among your networks. For those who are unsure what ransomware, viruses, worms and Trojans are the Get Safe Online website has some basic definitions and for those who want further advice on how to protect yourselves these can be found on the websites for the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), Eastern Region Serious and Organised Crime Unit (ERSOU) or Microsoft. An Action Fraud alert was sent earlier this week on ecops.
Both documents can be circulated within your communities.
