Avast and Neighbourhood Watch Partnership

Avast has teamed up with Neighbourhood Watch to create the UK Cyberhood Watch initiative that will help people in Britain learn more about the cybersecurity risks that exist every time we go online, and discover which regions of the UK are the most at risk.

From phishing to viruses to ransomware, this community-led awareness programme looks at the impact cybercrime can have on our everyday lives, and provides simple tips on the steps we can take to protect ourselves, our friends and family, and our local community.
