Cyber attacks can be devastating both financially and reputationally, but many charities may not realise how vulnerable they are to the threat.
In fact, a recent survey by Third Sector and NCSC with over 120 charities, revealed that one in five perceive cyber security to be a low priority in their organisation, and only half of respondents are fully aware of of the potential consequences of a cyber attack on charities, leaving the other half wide open to emerging threats.
In this video, the first in a four-part cyber security series produced by Third Sector Insight, in partnership with the NCSC, we interviewed Becca K, charity sector resilience lead, NCSC, to discover:
Emerging cyber threats that charities might face and how to spot them.
How vulnerable are charities to cyber attacks and how has this evolved?
How can charities spot an attack and keep pace with emerging threats?
The NCSC offers a range of cyber security advice and guidance for charities including how to mitigate malware and ransomware attacks, cyber security guidance for boards and a cyber security guide for small charities.
