As law enforcement in the UK and beyond are now expected to tackle the plague of cybersecurity-related fraud, scams, and crimes being committed for the purposes of identity theft and financial gain, they must also now become familiar with the threats, concepts, and -- at the least -- the basics in how such attacks are conducted. The police cannot always be on the front line especially when it comes to targeted attacks and scams conducted online.
