Survey Information

This study is being carried out by the University of Portsmouth and is supported by the Home Office and Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS). The findings will be used to help government, and other agencies, to understand the experiences of victims of computer misuse crime (hacking, computer viruses, ransomware etc.) and improve the law enforcement and other services available to support such victims.
