Cyber Choices for Parents and Guardians

Our aim is to divert people positively, not to criminalise unnecessarily.

Under the National Crime Agency (NCA)’s Cyber Choices initiative, we help people make informed choices, and use their cyber skills in a legal way.

The Computer Misuse Act (CMA)

It’s important to know how the law relates to everyday scenarios. Use our CMA guide below to make sure you’re aware of what constitutes an offence.


Cyber Choices

The Cyber Choices programme was created to help people make informed choices and to use their cyber skills in a legal way.

This national programme is coordinated by the National Crime Agency, and the programme website points to a huge number of useful, free developmental resources from trusted partners.

Virtual Cyber School

Thousands of young people are being offered the chance to sign up to the virtual cyber security school!

Learn how to crack codes, fix security flaws and dissect criminals’ digital trails while progressing through the game. This will help develop important skills needed for future jobs, particularly in cyber security.


A series of interactive online games designed to teach teenagers the fundamentals of cyber security has also been released for free.

Players protect the virtual city ‘CyberLand’ from cyber attacks while learning key skills needed for future careers, particularly those in cyber security.
