TOP SECRET: Cyberhood Watch Campaign to Launch 5th November 2019

We are excited to announce the launch of Cyberhood Watch, the official partnership between Neighbourhood Watch and Avast, is launching tomorrow, Tuesday 5th November.  Avast, a leading cyber security company, have come onboard as a new key sponsor for Neighbourhood Watch for the next 12 months. We know from our members how pressing the subject of cybersecurity and online fraud is today and it’s only increasing as a key crime issue, so we are pleased to be working with prevention experts in this field.

The Cyberhood Watch initiative aims to better equip our members with tools, resources and information needed to stay safe online. Many of our members will already be aware of Cyberhood Watch, particularly the 14,000 of you who responded to our survey exploring attitudes and concerns around cybersecurity. The results of the survey form a key part of the press release launching the partnership, and will be referred to at key points over the initiative. We did a shout out for members who were interested or active in cybersecurity and online safety, and following discussions with those that came forward we have appointed our first round of Cyberhood Watch Ambassadors.

The campaign will officially launch on Tuesday 5th November, meaning you may read about it in your local or national newspaper, hear about it on the radio, or even see representatives from Neighbourhood Watch and Avast talking about it on TV. If you receive this message prior to Tuesday 5th November please do not share or discuss it until the day.

Following the launch there will be a range of useful resources that we will add to throughout the partnership, such as blog posts, bespoke toolkits, Cyberhood Watch stickers, etc., as well as an online training course about cybersecurity, available to all members via the new Avast Cyberhood Watch webpage and the Neighbourhood Watch website. Visit either site from tomorrow to find the links.

Over the next 12 months, Avast will be working with Neighbourhood Watch to support the Ambassadors, host events, provide resources for events you may be running, develop useful guides and toolkits, and share Cyberhood Watch stickers and other merchandise to help drive awareness of the initiative across all regions. This initiative is about communities supporting communities when it comes to cybersecurity.

If you have any questions about Cyberhood Watch or Neighbourhood Watch’s partnership with Avast, please contact

We thank you for your continued support.
