    PC Rob Cowgill was previously the lead on Cybercrime training for West Yorkshire Police new recruits.

    He joined the Police in 2007 as a front-line Police Officer, based in Bradford. He soon began to mentor, tutor and assess new recruits that joined, before becoming the lead Cybercrime trainer for Foundation Training at West Yorkshire Police (WYP).

    Rob joined WYP Cybercrime Team in 2018 as the Force Cyber PROTECT Officer where his primary role was to engage with businesses and academia providing national advice and guidance.

    He has developed a vast array of business networking contacts, which helped him with the development of Project Cerebral- a competition which was designed to ‘pit the wits’ of students from Universities across the West Yorkshire area, he has extensive experience of speaking at forum, group and cluster events, he has designed and delivered Cyber Defenders- a training package specifically aimed at SMEs, Charities, and the legal and accountancy sectors, for a non-technical audience (who may have little or no knowledge of cyber security), in order to develop that human firewall within an organisation.

    He can deliver tailored awareness sessions based on the national messages as well as workshops, to reduce those vulnerabilities within your network.
