New website to help fight against cyber crime
When the Office of Cyber Security & Information Assurance (OCSIA) needed a new website to help in their fight against cybercrime, they turned to the team at PDMS.
The purpose of the website was to create a hub for all cyber-related issues that could impact the Island’s residents - providing both businesses and residents with advice & guidance and news & advisories on cyber threats and security information. Importantly, people can quickly and easily use the site to report cyber concerns and suspicious emails. In January 2022 alone, more than 567 suspicious emails were reported to OCSIA with 77% containing malicious links and 7% containing malicious attachments. These reports feed into the work of the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre which removed over 135,000 malicious URLs and 73,000 scams last year.
Simon Hurst, Cyber Intelligence, Operations and Incident Manager, Office of Cyber-Security & Information Assurance commented:
‘Thank you to the team at PDMS for creating our new website. We found the Design Team really easy to work with – they quickly understood our requirements which meant that from our perspective the project wasn’t time-consuming and we knew that we were in safe hands.’
Georgia Vernon, UX Designer at PDMS added:
‘As a technology company we are all really aware of the threats posed by cybercrime and the devastating impact it can have on individuals when they fall victim to scams. I really enjoyed working with the team at OCSIA on this new website to help support their vital work in keeping our local community safe from cybercrime.’
The website has been designed and built by PDMS’s Design Team and uses Umbraco to power the content management system. The team at OCSIA received Umbraco training which allows them to have full control of the content and imagery used on the website. It also meets the latest accessibility requirements and is fully optimised for mobile, tablet and desktop browsing.
