Police CyberAlarm

Police CyberAlarm

Helping organisations monitor and report the malicious activities they face from the internet.

 Police CyberAlarm acts as a “CCTV camera” monitoring the traffic seen by a member’s connection to the internet. It detects and provides regular reports of suspected malicious activity, enabling organisations to minimise their vulnerabilities.

The data collected by Police CyberAlarm is then used to create regular reports on potential malicious activity seen by individual member organisations, as well as reports containing threat trends seen across the member network. Members can then use this report to update their defences to better protect themselves from cyber threats. Vulnerability Scanning can also be added and used to scan an organisations website and external IP addresses, providing regular reports of all known vulnerabilities.

Since Police CyberAlarm launched it has identified over a billion potential malicious incidents resulting in reports and advice being given to members, enabling them to take action to prevent a successful attack.

The data collected is also helping UK Policing build a much better picture of the threats businesses face and the local, regional and national trends, and is helping them to identify, pursue and prosecute cyber criminals.
