The importance of cyber security and the threats posed to businesses and individuals will be highlighted throughout March when a specially equipped cyber information bus is set to tour all 22 unitary authorities in Wales.

 

Funded by the Welsh Government and managed by Tarian, the Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU) for Southern Wales along with the North West ROCU, the bus will travel throughout Wales before returning to the Welsh capital on 29 March 2019.

 

The aim of the initiative is to raise awareness of cyber security for individuals, groups and businesses, delivering key messaging in line with the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and the UK National Cyber Security Strategy.
