Tarian Regional Cyber Crime Unit (RCCU)

Forming part of Tarian Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU), we are a multi-disciplinary team of police officers and police staff seconded from the three forces of South Wales, Gwent and Dyfed-Powys.

Working with partners such as the National Crime Agency (NCA), National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and the Welsh Government, our mission is to contribute towards a safer and more cyber secure environment in Southern Wales.

Support for

Organisations

We work with businesses and enterprises, charities and schools, to increase their awareness of the relevant cyber threats and offer them fully funded services and products to help them better protect and prepare themselves.

Support for

Education

We work with the NCA to promote the Cyber Choices programme which helps young people to make informed choices about their future careers whilst encouraging them to use their cyber skills in a legal way.

Insights

There has been a recent increase in cyber attacks targeting councils across the UK.

Due to the success of our first wave of recruitment we are now looking to take on more enthusiastic volunteers to support our work in the Regional Cyber Crime Unit.

Online scammers are constantly evolving their attack methods to try and catch potential victims out. Two tactics that are being increasingly reported are the use of Cyrillic letters, and malicious QR codes.

Who we are

Tarian RCCU is made up of three distinct teams who specialise in engagement and outreach, digital forensics and criminal investigations.
