Description

NCSC Cyber Security Training for Small Charities and Community Groups


Do you know how to protect your organisation against a cyber-attack? Have you thought about the risks to your business if you were hacked, phished or your online presence crashed?


Sometimes it's easy to assume that charities and community groups are either too small or too 'nice' to be targeted, but have you thought about the impact of a fraudulent invoice getting through the system, how difficult it is to be truly data secure, and how damaging it is to find your email system or website unexpectedly offline? The smallest organisations are often the most vulnerable in all sorts of ways. And the average cost to a charity of a cyber security breach has been calculated to be around £1030.

The session will be broken into three main parts;

  • What cyber attacks could a small charity fall victim to?
  • What simple steps can you take to enhance your cyber security?
  • What should we do if we suffer a cyber attack?

After the session you will be provided with NCSC’s Cyber Security: Small Charity Guide, and Actions Checklist to help you put your new knowledge into practice.

Please note that this is a free workshop for local charities and community organisations.

Please confirm if you are unable to attend this event by giving 48 hours notice. If you are unable to attend and do not give notice then you will be charged £20.00.
