Our latest survey reveals that demands on, and expectations of, the police in tackling cybercrime are set to grow significantly. Driven by the emergence of a new generation, and characterised by their lifelong exposure to the internet and digital media (dubbed ‘Generation Z’), police forces need to balance this new demand with the need to continue to tackle crimes carried out in the real world. They will also have to continue providing reassurance to older generations and find new ways of working with industry to tackle the threat.
Generations have different levels of exposure to the internet that shape their susceptibility and concerns about cybercrime.
