Hampshire Police - IAG and Fraud

IAG members are encouraged to use their knowledge and skills to give back to the community. My expertise lies in computing and fraud.

My first computer was an IBM 5150 PC with 64 kB memory and dual 160 kB floppies, which drove a 24 line 80 character monochrome display. My current PC which I built myself has 64 GB memory with 1 TB SSDs and a 30" high resolution display with FreeView and FreeSat TV Tuners connected to our 10Gb LAN.

During my career I have spent 10 years in audit and conducted fraud investigations.

I am also a member of the Hampshire Neighbourhood Cyber Watch Team.  If you need help on cyber fraud please visit https://hampshirecyberwatch.org/

As part of my IAG payback, I present free seminars in the Havant, Hayling Island, Emsworth, Waterlooville, Leigh Park and Bedhampton areas to resident and community groups on how to avoid fraud.  Please contact me via this link.

These seminars are temporarily suspended during the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic; however, feel free to contact me to make a provisional booking for when COVID-19 restrictions allow.

As an IAG member of the Hampshire Police Strategic Prosperity Governance Group, I have visibility of economic crime and cyber crime statistics across Hampshire and visibility of Police operations to prevent and protect the public.  

I use these statistics to present a seminar on how to avoid fraud and in particular cyber-fraud.  A typical presentation format is based on the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) guidance and includes:

  • HMRC fraud scenario 
  • Phishing frauds
  • Blackmail scenario
  • Other frauds
  • Advice on risk avoidance

Seminars are also offered by the Digital Intelligence Investigation Protect Officer from the Hampshire Constabulary Cyber Crime Unit; we work together.
