Tackling cybercrime

Cybercrime is becoming an increasing threat in our more digital society and criminals are finding new and inventive ways to try and get our personal data and information.

To help people feel safe and secure when they’re online, Derbyshire County Council have launched a brand new Digital MOT service which is available for staff and people in the local community.

It’s an online risk assessment tool that has been designed to help people review their online safety and identify any actions they can take to protect themselves.

All you have to do is answer a few simple questions about your online habits and you’ll be able to see the most important steps you can take to avoid falling victim to cyber-scammers.

Complete the Digital MOT now and find out how you can be more secure online.

If you work with anyone who needs a bit of help or support to access the Digital MOT, they can book a one-to-one session through their local library.
