Detective Superintendent Jon Gilbert is the strategic lead for Cyber for Bedfordshire Police and previously led the delivery for the East of England in support of a co-ordinated National Policing response to Cyber

Jon's talk will cover the following topics:

  • An overview of the current use and adoption of (information) technology
  • Associated risks and criminal exploitation
  • Law Enforcement Strategy and response to the challenges posed
  • Emerging opportunities moving forward in partnership

Cyber crime is one of the fastest growing criminal activities across the world, and can affect both individuals and businesses.

Bedfordshire Police is now embarking on a comprehensive response to cyber crime, working together with partners to research real-world cyber issues, and developing strategies to both prevent and protect against the ever-changing cyber crime profile.

In August this year, Bedfordshire Police were proud to announce the launch of its innovative new Cyber Hub - a unit dedicated to analysing digital data to investigate cyber crime.

We envisage this will form the basis for a series of talks on cyber crime given by Bedfordshire Police and its partners over the coming years.

There is free parking to the rear of The Park Inn Hotel. Remember to register your vehicle registration with Reception upon arrival otherwise you will incur a penalty charge.
