Following the ransomware cyber attack on Friday 12 May which affected the NHS and is believed to have affected other organisations globally, the City of London Police’s National Fraud Intelligence Bureau has issued an alert urging both individuals and businesses to follow protection advice immediately and in the coming days.
Ransomware is a form of malicious software (Malware) that enables cyber criminals to remotely lock down files on your computer or mobile device. Criminals will use ransomware to extort money from you (a ransom), before they restore access to your files. There are many ways that ransomware can infect your device, whether it be a link to a malicious website in an unsolicited email, or through a security vulnerability in a piece of software you use.

Parking Crackdown – Area Commander Update

Message sent by
James Sutherland (Police, Chief Inspector, South Cambridgeshire)

In February we launched a web-site where you could register complaints about parking in your village. As promised we have taken the information that you gave us and have run our first two crackdown days.
During these days we ring-fenced our PCSOs and deployed them only to the places where you told us parking was a problem.  Before deploying our PCSOs I took a careful review of the information and it was clear to me that a lot of the parking being complained about wasn’t necessarily illegal.  This is due to some confusion about the difference between a Highway Code Rule and the rules established by the Road Traffic Act.  Without getting too technical, there are some rules in the highway code which are ‘should not’ and some that are ‘must not’.  Only the latter can be legally enforced.  Click on Read More for further information.
