Our Cyber Champions are Neighbourhood Watch volunteers trained by AVAST as part of the National NW Cyberhood Watch Ambassador programme. Many of our Champions also benefit from additional training from Hampshire Police Cyber Crime Unit.
What services do we offer?
Our Cyber Champions are keen to talk to (local) groups across Hampshire to increase awareness of cyber crime and to demonstrate ways to help keep you safe. Talks are tailored to suit the type of audience and can be with or without a slide presentation and in person or via Zoom. Talks are free (but we ask that any travel expenses are reimbursed).

We will help:
Any Hampshire group wishing to improve awareness of cyber crime amongst their members.
