Cyber security for business

How to report a cyber crime


Businesses and organisations in Northern Ireland can report different types of cyber crime to the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) via an online form.

You should use this form for non-emergency incidents only. If the cyber attack is currently in progress, report it immediately to Action Fraud on Tel 0300 123 2040.

If you receive a suspected phishing email, you can report it to the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) via email -

Why should you report cyber crime?

Depending on the scope of the crime, the PSNI may be able to:

  • advise you on the appropriate cyber security measures
  • assist you in responding to the incident
  • assist in identifying and prosecuting offenders

In cases of serious crime, the PSNI may refer your case to specialised law enforcement agencies such as the National Crime Agency.

All cyber crime reports are secure and fully confidential.
