The Cybercrime Research Unit at the University of Leeds is looking into public confidence and trust in the policing and regulation of cybercrime as part of a larger EPSRC funded project into cybercrime [Consortia for Exploratory Research in Security (CEReS) programme]. We would like to invite you to assist with our research by completing a short business cybercrime survey (approx. 15 minutes).

Your answers to this survey will be used with other data to help us comprehend the public confidence and trust levels of the industry in the current policing and judicial response to cybercrime. More specifically, any experiences of cybercrime (as an individual and as a business), will help in understanding some of the issues you are facing as an internet user and some of the challenges the criminal justice system faces.The data you provide will be used to assist policy makers, criminal justice agencies and businesses better manage their security risks and prevent cybercrime. The research results will be written up in a report and also submitted to academic journals for publication (please let us know if you would like to be placed on the email circulation list for information relating to this project).

We really value your input; for this reason, we will treat your answers confidentially. All the information you provide will be kept securely at the University, accessible only to the research team. The information will only be used to inform the current project under the terms of the University of Leeds Research Ethics Policy. The University of Leeds is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office under the Data Protection Act 1998; all personal data will be processed in accordance with its provisions.
