Police Scotland Data Breach Guidance

Published: April 19, 2022


Police Scotland’s Cybercrime Harm Prevention team has created guidance for people, groups and organisations who have experienced a data breach online.

The guidance is designed to be easy to follow, with additional links to trusted Police Scotland partners’ sites, where further support is available.

They have also created a “quick-read” guidance on “Locking Out Cyber Criminals” from your online accounts.

Additionally, the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has a range of information on password security, available on their website.
