Mike has tabled an Early Day Motion (EDM) in the House of Commons to make it easier for businesses to report cyber crime.
There is a feeling amongst business owners that the Government is not doing enough to assist those who have been – and those who could be – affected by cyber crime. Mike has been discussing how to achieve a greater level of support and has started campaigning for the creation of an accessible knowledge base to enable companies to safeguard themselves from attack.
Commenting, Mike said: “Cyber crime is a silent menace that is on the increase. It often goes undetected and is woefully unreported as there is little public awareness. I have tabled this Early Day Motion in order to support individuals and businesses who need assistance from these attacks that more often than not emanate from overseas.”
He added: “If you have been affected by cyber-crime and would like to provide an account of what happened, please contact Natasha Malden, who is heading the national anti-cybercrime initiative on firstname.lastname@example.org.”
