Swansea University Cyber Clinic - 14 December 2021
14th December 2021 | 10:00 - 12:00

Join us at the 'Swansea Cyber Clinic' - a pilot project looking at victim support needs in a digital world. With widespread scams, online abuse and disinformation increasing everywhere, we want to know how victims' needs are changing and what tools/strategies/training would help those who help victims.

If you are a cyber security professional with experience and/or an interest in digital forensics and supporting vulnerable individuals, we would like your help to explore how victims' needs are changing, the strengths and weaknesses of the current support available, and how it may be improved in the future. We have also invited practitioners in frontline victim support/protection roles, from the third, private and public sectors.

Together, we will design a prototype 'cyber clinic' which might include tools and resources to help victims of what we now traditionally think of as 'cybercrime' (e.g. online fraud, computer hacking), but also of 'hybrid' threats and harms, which can include both online and offline elements (e.g. online abuse, hate crimes, coercive behaviour, intimate partner violence, etc).

Join us at a virtual focus group between December 2021 and January 2022 to:

  • Share your experience and learn from other like-minded practitioners
  • Contribute towards identifying best practice
  • Have early access to research reports and recommendations
  • Be invited to partner with the team in future initiatives
If you would like to take part, we still have a few slots available in the upcoming sessions over the next two weeks. Here are the dates and times:
  • Tuesday, 07/12/2021, 10:00-12:00
  • Wednesday, 08/12/2021, 14:00-16:00
  • Tuesday, 14/12/2021, 10:00-12:00
We also have some dates in January, if none of the above are convenient.

This project is being led by researchers at Swansea University, in partnership with the local SWP Cybercrime Unit and the Swansea Council for Voluntary Service (SCVS), with funding from the Morgan Advanced Studies Institute (MASI).

We look forward to hearing from you, The Cyber Clinic Team
