NCCU Cyber Crime Campaign teaches kids benefits of online skills
The National Cyber Crime Unit (NCCU) has launched a new campaign aimed at tackling cyber crime in the UK, by educating young people about how computer skills can be used positively, rather than for online crime.
The team will get parents, teachers and schools careers advisers on board to show how skills that can be used for cyber crime are in high demand in many industries.
The Top 20 Free, Paid and Revenue Grossing UK mobile charts for week 01 by Reflection.
Rockstar/Take 2 climb 2 places to claim No1 with ‘Grand Theft Auto V’. This is the 10th time GTAV has made No1 on the All Formats Top 40, the last time being 23 weeks ago in week 31, 2016. GTAV joins a select band of 12 (now 13) titles that have at least 10 weeks at No1 on this chart – only 1 of these 12 was a Take 2 title and that record was set a long time ago (GTA Vice City on PS2 in 2002/2003 managed 10 weeks at No1).

The Top 20 Free, Paid and Revenue Grossing UK mobile charts for week 52 by Reflection.
‘Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’ starts 2017 just as it ended 2016 – at No1. It is the 8th week that Activision Blizzard’s blockbuster has grabbed top spot and if it holds on for another week it will equal the 2nd highest number of All Formats No1s for a Call of Duty title, matching ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’. However, it still has a way to go to equal front runner Black Ops III’s 11 weeks of No1s.
Activision top the final week of the year and take a fourth consecutive No1 thanks to ‘Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’.
There’s not much movement within the chasing pack: EA’s ‘FIFA 17’ remains at No2, EA’s ‘Battlefield 1’ remains at No3 and Rockstar/Take 2 end the year on a high by climbing 1 place to No4 with ‘Grand Theft Auto V’. GTA V was last seen as high as No4 some 12 weeks ago and has also been within the Top 4 for 12 weeks in 2016.
It is definitely a Call of Duty December, as Activision’s ‘Infinite Warfare’ takes a third consecutive week back at No1, having taken the Xmas No1 spot last week and now the penultimate chart of the year. It looks like the current Call of Duty will take the last No1 spot of the year, much like the previous two Call of Duty Xmas No1’s (‘Advanced Warfare’ was Xmas and end of year No1 in 2014 and ‘Black Ops III’ did the same in 2015).
