The many sinister faces of Cybercrime are little understood and their affects can be devastating.  ISIS Women’s Centre in Gloucester is delivering a workshop on three separate days - Friday, 10th, 17th and 24th April to raise awareness and help prevent cybercrime. 


The workshop runs from 2.00 pm until 4.30 pm (arrive for refreshments at 1.30 pm)and places can be booked at a cost of £20 per person by calling ISIS on 01452 397690 or emailing

Bringing together speakers from Gloucestershire Constabulary; Sea Change (Domestic Violence Training and Consultancy); ISIS Women’s Centre; Moca Technology and F-Secure; this interactive workshop informs us of the latest digital developments in cybercrime and how to keep our IT world safe. 

Speaker Laura Kavanagh, ISIS Women’s Centre, comments, “Technology and the internet have created a myriad of new ways to intimidate, humiliate, bully and stalk, many of which we are completely unaware of.  For example, former Miss Teen USA, Cassidy Wolf, was unwittingly photographed on numerous occasions, when the camera on her laptop was hacked by a former classmate.  It wasn’t until the perpetrator tried to blackmail her with the photographs he had taken that she became aware that a crime had even been committed.  This workshop will update people about the methods of cybercrime being used in the digital world and the best ways to protect ourselves and others.”
