1 Agenda Item No. 5 COMMUNITY OUTCOMES MEETING SUBJECT: CYBER CRIME 4 August 2015 Report of the Chief Constable PURPOSE OF THE REPORT 1. This report outlines the Force s current position in relation to the Policing of Cyber Crime. RECOMMENDATION 2. That the Police and Crime Commissioner uses this report to scrutinise Force activity in respect of Cyber Crime. PRIORITY IN THE POLICING AND CRIME PLAN 3. Cyber crime and its associated activities are growing, the PCC has committed to work with partners including the police service to ensure they have the right skill sets and tools to investigate and protect individuals, businesses and communities against crimes perpetrated via the Internet. The PCC has provided 3.5m to tackle issues such as cyber-crime, and West Yorkshire Police have recently set up a cyber-crime team to develop the approach and facilitate learning amongst wider officers. More serious cyber-crime is dealt with by the Regional Cyber Crime Unit, the PCC has visited those working within the Unit to hear about the work they do and this work will continue to be supported through collaboration and the funding attached to it. The PCC is represented on West Yorkshire Police s Cyber Board that comprises primarily Police force colleagues. This is looking at the College of Policing Cyber Capabilities Framework and how the force is responding, including partnership working, engagement and communications. The community conversation survey (a survey designed to ensure communities are listened to and involved) included a question on whether people had been victims of cyber crime and if so what happened. The responses, amongst others things, indicated that people did not fully understand what a cyber crime was or the range of offences it covered, and a lot of the respondents considered it was inevitable that you would become a victim or an attempt would be made against you at some point in the future. The preliminary results from this work were shared with partners and were communicated to the cyber board for use to help inform a problem profile that was being developed. Responses to this question can be found on the PCC s website. 1

2 The PCC has discussed child sexual exploitation and online grooming with his Youth Advisory Group. Members of the group shared some really important information on the types of social media websites and Apps out there and informed him of the risks they face on a regular basis while on the internet at home or school. These conversations have led to the PCC s support for the NSPCC s Flaw in the Law campaign (to make it a crime for an adult to send a child a sexual message) and their Share Aware campaign (to inform parents about the risks of different social network sites used by children). In October 2014 the PCC also wrote to the Secretary of State for Justice to support calls for new and enhanced laws around internet trolls and so called revenge porn. During 2014/15 a project has been funded through the Safer Communities Fund that says it has a core focus on cyber crime, namely raising awareness of online exploitation. Many more of the projects are tackling issues relating to the use of computers to perpetrate crime as use of technology is common place. ATTACHMENTS Chief Constables report on Cyber Crime dated 29 June

3 West Yorkshire Police Chief Constable s Report to the Police and Crime Commissioner for Information Report on Cyber Crime Paper requested by: OPCC for Community Outcomes Meeting August 2015 Report Author: Inspector Vanessa Smith On Behalf of: ACC Russ Foster SUMMARY Strategic Aims and objectives 1) Cyber Crime has been highlighted as a priority within the revised Police and Crime Plan. West Yorkshire Police s strategy is centered on the 4 P s - Prevent, Prepare, Pursue and Protect, putting the victim at the heart of everything. The Force has established a Cyber Project Board which is chaired by Assistant Chief Constable (ACC) for Protective Services Crime and includes key leaders from across different areas of business including intelligence, investigations, procurement, Human Resources (HR), Training and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC). The Project Board is managing the Force s compliance with the College of Policing capability framework, which details specific requirements of the Force. The Board aim to have 100% compliance with this document in the near future. 2) From a national perspective West Yorkshire Police (WYP) are engaging with other forces in respect of the development of Cyber Crime. A recent visit from the National Crime Agency highlighted the excellent comparative progress that West Yorkshire Police have made with respect to the Capability Framework and other areas that are being progressed. West Yorkshire Police are engaging with partners including Get Safe Online to influence national cyber prevention advice and messaging. 3) At a regional level West Yorkshire Police are working with the Regional Forces, partaking in regular meetings focused on Prevent, Prepare, Pursue and Protect. Working with the College of Policing the Region has sought to enhance available training, co-ordinate prevention campaigns and manage the threats posed to communities by Cyber Crime. 4) At a local level West Yorkshire Police are engaging with academia to both enhance the policing response and also identify new and emerging threats. Districts are working closely with local communities including schools and business sectors to provide bespoke training and guidance, impacting directly at the heart of communities with prevention and protection advice and guidance. 3

4 5) West Yorkshire Police have established a Cyber Crime Team which will sit centrally in the Force. Six people with specific skills in this area have been recruited, all with a background in Cyber Crime studies or investigations. The Cyber Crime Team will be working closely with District staff to provide specialist advice at a local level to enhance and improve cyber investigations across all crime types. 6) The Cyber Crime Team will develop knowledge, effective practices and skills which will be shared across the Force ensuring that at the planned conclusion of the Cyber Crime Team in 2017 the effective investigation of Cyber Crime will be a mainstreamed skill. Key Information and Events 7) There has been an increase in the number of Cyber Crime related reports to West Yorkshire Police since December It is likely that this increase is as a consequence of increased training for officers and staff and greater awareness by the public via news reports and crime prevention initiatives across the Force. 8) West Yorkshire Police officers and staff participate in mandatory E-learning courses developed by the College of Policing concerning Cyber Crime. In addition there are 230 main stream Cyber Crime trained officers across the Force. West Yorkshire Police Training and Development Centre are conducting at least one mainstream Cyber Crime training course per month and every 6 weeks are running an Open Source course. We now have 70 officers across the Force trained in this area. At the end of this current training cycle in December 2015, WYP will have 30 accredited Digital Media Investigators (DMIs) spread proportionately across the 5 Districts. Officers from Protective Services Crime will also provide bespoke investigative advice across serious and complex crime investigations as well as volume crime. DMIs will enhance Cyber Crime reports for Cyber Crime attacks and instances at all levels of criminality. This increased functionality will increase our resilience with respect to digital media investigations and allow structured continued professional development of these trained staff. 9) The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) are to produce a problem profile bespoke to West Yorkshire Police. In the current Cyber Crime landscape, Action Fraud hold the most Cyber Crime data nationally. Once this profile has been developed it will assist to inform the current threat and risk posed by cyber. 10) An analyst has been identified and a start date is agreed. Once appointed further analytical work can be produced to provide an informed assessment of the threat and risk posed by Cyber Crime in West Yorkshire. There is currently no definitive measure of either the scale of the Cyber Crime threat or the specific costs of the criminality to the UK according to the NCA s assessments. 4

5 11) We have conducted two proactive operations where information has been obtained identifying offenders possessing and distributing abusive images of children across the Force. The latest operation commenced on 15 th June 2015 in which 16 search warrants were executed and 17 arrests made. The use of on scene triaging allowed for early identification of devices containing indecent images and thereby reduced the need to seize devices that contained no images. Community Impact 12) Due to the continuing development of communication technology the way society lives and behaves has changed. Criminals have changed to adapt with the new digital environment, with new crimes made possible through the use of technology and more traditional crimes being facilitated and conducted at unprecedented volume and speed. It is essential that West Yorkshire Police and all police forces develop new ways of increasing awareness, preventing, investigating and disrupting all crimes that migrate across the physical and digital world. A unique aspect of Cyber Crime is its ability to cross geographic and political boundaries instantaneously. For this reason many Cyber Crimes may not be easily detectable, but this does not diminish the need to provide support, reassurance and a professional service to members of the public. 13) Approximately 88% of people in the UK use the internet, 84 % of the UK has an active social network profile, 35 billion internet devices in the world approximately 5 per person. 14) With increased access to the internet across all of society, it is important that WYP and partners continue to engage with the public via education for Cyber Crime prevention and to provide a consistent response to Cyber Crime when reported. There have been a number of crime prevention initiatives across West Yorkshire which the Safer Schools Police Officers have delivered to adults and children. Cyber Crime workshops have been carried out with the West Yorkshire Police Explorers programme, and there has been further work including the Get Safe On Line and Block the Web Monsters campaigns. All these programmes help to raise the awareness of Cyber Crime amongst the public. 15) From 2nd to 7th of March 2015 West Yorkshire Police participated in a National Crime Agency led proactive operation concerned with the use of malware. Malware is legal to buy and possess but illegal to use. Twelve purchasers of malware were identified and served cease and desist letters explaining the legal implications of using such a product. A series of Cyber Crime prevention advice messages were delivered across a variety of mediums, such as the West Yorkshire Police website, Twitter, and newspaper articles throughout the Force area following the operation. 5

6 Equality and Diversity Considerations 16) Through increased partnership working it is essential that all partners, including law enforcement and academia, raise awareness of key changes to legislation, developments in technology and that the investigative methods consider individuals rights across all diversity strands namely age, gender, race, religion, disability and sexual orientation. Human Rights Considerations 17) Online investigations impact in particularly on Article 8 Human Rights Act, the Right to a Private Life and Family Life. Trustees of the Police National Legal Database (PNLD), have agreed in principle to develop a legal framework for Cyber Investigators when applying existing legislation to online investigations. West Yorkshire Police will work with the PNLD to develop the framework. When completed it will be disseminated to law enforcement across the UK. Strategic Implications 18) The National Crime Agency reports that the scale of Cyber Crime has yet to be accurately quantified as it is recognised there is an under reporting of Cyber Crime in the UK. Work is ongoing across all forces working with Regional Cyber Crime Units and the National Crime Agency to develop a structured and linked up approach to the threat and risk of Cyber Crime. West Yorkshire Police Cyber Crime Team are developing working relationships with Districts, which will become stronger once operational. 19) West Yorkshire Police created a Cyber Project Board last year chaired by ACC (Specialist Crime) who oversaw the development of the cyber capabilities using an action matrix. We have also invited the College of Policing to conduct a peer review of the capability framework to chart progress made and to develop practices where needed. 20) West Yorkshire Police and Leeds University, with support from other partners including the Police and Crime Commissioner have submitted a funding bid to the College of Policing and Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) for 750, 000. The aim of the bid is to improve and incorporate an evidence-based approach into the frontline policing of digital forensics and Cyber Crime investigations. Cyber Crime is not exclusively a technical problem. This research will analyse the Cyber Crime investigation lifecycle, from the experience of the public when reporting Cyber Crime, to the investigation stage and then to the prosecution phase. This will identify the key knowledge gaps and needs in the policing of cyber enabled crime. The outcome of the bid application will be known in July Should this be unsuccessful then further external funding will be sought to achieve the objective. 29 th June
