The E^book opens with an examination of cyber crime and how it may be extinguished by using The Theft Triangle, a tried and tested model that's found in civil protection and crime prevention.
Designed and intended as an E^book that all staff may carry with them, the book then outlines Sean O'Neil's Bunch of Fives - the five simple, practical, non-technical steps that may be taken to detect cyber crime then rapidly and drastically reduce the risk to business.
The E^book concludes with a 43 point checklist, referred to by Bedfordshire Police's Cyber Hub as The Cyber Basics Review. The CBR is the first step towards gaining a Cyber Essentials accreditation that, ahead of the UK Government's forthcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is regarded as a business basic requirement for data processors who risk imprisonment if found to be responsible for a data breach.
