Now or Never - Why Cyber Security Matters and Why We Need to Take Action Today!
It's now or never! Innovation in technology is taking place at pace that would Moore's law to shame. To put it briefly - unless we take stock of what controls and safeguards we are putting in place today we may be walking in nothing short of Cyber Armageddon! Too far fetched? Come and listen to what Amar has to say before you pass judgment.
How Charities can use Volunteers to Protect Data and their Reputation
Charities hold extensive personal and sensitive information about their clients, supporters as well as employees, but frequently lack the resource expertise to adequately protect this information. In trying to maximise their support reach for front-line clients, they are vulnerable to trust and reputation in cases of cyber-attacks as well as legal damages (in cases privacy and data protection insufficiencies). The primary goal of which is start a conversation which will ultimately result in matching local charities up with local experienced professionals willing to volunteer one day of their time to help / advise them. Information Security, Cyber, Incident response, Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC), Assurance, Data Privacy etc professionals have the potential to make a real difference by helping charities plan and respond to cyber threats.
