Operation Falcon (MPS) is developing a strategy to assist in this area.  This will be based on operational outcomes as well as victims' reports, to identify vulnerabilities and seek to address enablers. Part of the strategy will include communications 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 also include future delivery of table top exercises and presentations, to demonstrate the threat of Social Engineering, spoofing and data leakage as vulnerabilities.
