Episode #2, Season 2 of Phishy Business: From Cyber Stalking to Online Grooming, the Real-world Consequences of Cybercrime
There's a lack of support and understanding towards victims of cybercrime.
In this special episode, we speak to Rory Innes, founder of the cyber helpline, and Shane McCombs and Samantha Gamble of the Innocent Lives Foundation. We speak to them about the lack of support and understanding of online crime and how their organisations support victims and law enforcement services who are often not equipped to deal with cybercrimes.
In the second part of the podcast, we have a harrowing interview with a victim of cyber stalking and how The Cyber Helpline helped her get out of the dangerous situation she was in.
In this episode of Phishy Business, ‘From cyber stalking to online grooming, the real-world consequences of cybercrime’, we discuss:
- The lack of support and understanding of cybercrime from the mainstream law enforcement services and how charities are filling that gap
- The often-underestimated psychological trauma that cybercrime can cause
- Cybercrime should be looked at more than just as a financial loss
- Cybersecurity is still boring to the members of the public; the responsibility should be on companies to make their users safe
- How we can all get involved by helping these charities through donating
