Crime unit for Welsh business; roundUP.

BUSINESS Minister Edwina Hart has announced the creation of a new Wales Business Crime Unit.

Mrs Hart said: "The unit will deliver a programme of actions to both protect and educate businesses across all sectors in business crime prevention and cyber-security, and provide an opportunity for businesses in the ICT Sector to add to their portfolio of service."

Janet Jones, the FSB's Welsh Policy Unit chairwoman welcomed the news, adding: "Our research shows two thirds of businesses have fallen victim to business crime, losing up to pounds 3,000 a year as a result.

"Through increased awareness of business crime and its economic impact, businesses can have the confidence to report crime as soon as it happens and know it will be acted upon."
