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.
