About the speaker

Chris Conroy, Dorset Police Cyber Crime Unit

Chris has been with Dorset Police since 2014, starting as an emergency call handler before moving into the Force Intelligence Bureau. Whilst in Intelligence he specialised in open source research, using information people made readily available about themselves online to assist in identifying and arresting offenders. Whilst learning to utilise this information for a lawful purpose, it became clear how easily this information could be exploited for criminal purposes. Chris’s interest in cyber security and cyber hygiene grew from there, and he made the move into the forces Cyber Crime Unit in September 2018.
