Police Protect Network
Each of the five forces of the East Midlands (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire) have a dedicated Cyber Crime units who work together to protect our population and organisatios against cyber threats by improving their resilience and providing support.
Introduction to Your East Midlands Protect Network
The Crime Units are regionally coordinated by the East Midlands Special Operations Unit (EMSOU) and deliver local support to communities and organisations in crisis or vulnerable. They work proactively and reactively on significant cyber crime investigations and aim to defend against evolving cyber threats, deter and disrupt hostile action, and identify and utilise expertise to overcome future threats and challenges. Each unit also forms part of Team Cyber UK to deliver the National Cyber Crime Strategy 2022-2030 and support the National Cyber Security Centre.
Cyber Protect Officers are a local point of contact that we utilise to provide tailored support and guidance for organisations who are victims of crime or vulnerable. Having built good working relationships throughout the region, this allows the protect network to share all the best working practices, identify emerging trends and mitigate any new cyber criminality against companies within the region.
