What is Police CyberAlarm? 

Police CyberAlarm is a free tool to help your business understand and monitor malicious cyber activity. Police CyberAlarm acts like a "CCTV camera" monitoring the traffic seen by a member's connection to the internet. It will detect and provide regular reports of suspected malicious activity, enabling organisations to minimise their vulnerabilities. 

Vulnerability Scanning can be added and used to scan an organisations website and external IP addresses.

How does Police CyberAlarm work? 

Once you become a Police CyberAlarm member you install a ‘CyberAlarm Virtual Server’ on your system which will be used to collect and process traffic logs identifying suspicious activity from your firewall/internet gateway.

Police CyberAlarm is a monitoring system and does not interfere with normal network operations. It is a small virtual appliance outside the network and does not delay the traffic through the gateway and is installed with just one-click.

Data collected is used to create regular reports on suspicious and potentially malicious activity seen by your business, as well as reports identifying threat trends seen across the network of Police CyberAlarm members. Your business can use this reported intelligence to update your defences to better protect your business from cyber threats.

This data is also used by the Police to evaluate and track trends in cybercrime, and take enforcement action where appropriate. 

Does it collect any personal data? 

No, the data collected by the system does not contain any content of the traffic. The system is designed to protect personal data, trade secrets and intellectual property.
