The Regional Cyber Crime Unit (RCCU) is part of the Yorkshire & Humber Regional Organised Crime Unit. The unit works with the National Crime Agency and other partners, in the UK and abroad, to investigate and prevent the most serious cyber offences.
The RCCU deals predominantly with the most serious pure cyber-dependent offences relating to Malware based cyber-crime, including Botnets, Distributed Denial of Service attacks, Phishing, Network Compromise and Extortion.
The unit also works with the other Regional Organised Crime Unit departments and supports our regional Forces to tackle serious and organised crime by providing investigative and technical support and a proactive cyber capability.
Our Mission Statement
"A regional cyber capability that is feared by cyber-criminals, considered professional by the judiciary, respected by industry and trusted and relied upon by victims of cyber-crime at a regional and national level."
