The Met's Operation Falcon is developing a strategy to assist in this area.  At present victim's reports are being used to help identify vulnerabilities and seek to address enablers.  Some of the delivery will use existing material which is already available such as the Little Book of Big Scams and Little Book of Cyber Scams (booklets which identify common scams and provide basic protect advice to the reader). Plans are also being delivered for the delivery of table top exercises and presentations, to demonstrate the threat of Social Engineering, spoofing and data leakage as vulnerabilities.  The work of the London Digital Security Centre may also be extended to help support Local Authorities.
