Analysts unprepared for cybercrime spike

Police Product Insight 

2 February 2015

PA’s survey of police analysts is featured in a news article in Police Product Insight magazine. The article highlights how analysts believe that they will treble the time spent on investigating cybercrime over the next three years.

The article also draws on other key findings from the survey:

  • Police are ill-prepared to cope with today’s digital environment and are tackling cyber threats with officers trained to combat traditional crimes
  • A third of digital analysts have been unable to share operational information due to lack of suitable policies or IT
  • 74 per cent of analysts investigate crimes that have a cyber element, but only 10 per cent of their time is spent on cyber-related analysis
  • Only 15 per cent of analysts think cybercrime is specifically measured within their organisation, meaning the challenge may be even tougher than imagined.
