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.

We’re all going on a Summer Holiday…
Earlier this summer, the Ukie team took part in a day of unconscious bias training to ensure everyone at the trade body was aware of its impact (and how to mitigate it).
The training, which was provided by RightTrack Learning, provided an interactive way for the entire Ukie team to get to grips with unconscious bias training.
Adeogo, a budding mobile game developer who has already released his first mobile game, joined us in the Ukie office for a week of work experience. Here's what he had to say about his time with the trade body.
Back in 2012 Ukie hosted a rather special game jam. Named 'Journo/Dev Swap', it challenged game press to step up as developers, while game devs attended to cover the jam as press. Well; after a long wait the Journo/Dev Swap game jam is back.
Voting is now live in the Ukie board elections and we encourage all members to use their six votes to select their board.
*Deadline for voting is 5pm UK time Wednesday 28th August*
Our Members’ Survey is one of the most important pieces of work we do each year.
It is our way of finding out whether the industry is confident of future business growth, how it’s tackling the challenges of today and where it thinks the sector is going. And your responses matter to us.
That’s why we’re happy to announce that one member who fills in the survey before the deadline will win a free table on our Gamescom stand in Cologne in 2020, which normally costs £2,500.
Ukie will be celebrating its 30th birthday and its supporting 30 Years of Play campaign at Gamescom this year by bringing its largest presence ever to Cologne.
A record 84 companies will join the Ukie stand, which will be wrapped in a livery highlighting the key games and dates in the 30 years since the trade body first formed in 1989.
