As part of a new pilot scheme, the Northumbria Police Cyber Crime team are working with pupils from HMS to develop a child-friendly version of the Computer Misuse Act alongside Newcastle University and Northumberland County Council.
Pupils now have the opportunity to make their own version of the Computer Misuse Act to educate their classmates about cyber crime and its dangers. The winning project will be chosen by teachers at HMS, the Cyber Crime team, Newcastle University and Northumberland County Council.
