Webinar on-demand: How to keep your charity cyber safe

Third Sector Promotion National Cyber Security Centre

What are the emerging threats you need to be aware of, how can you keep up with them and what does a good incident response plan look like?

Cyber attacks are one of the biggest threats that organisations face today, so cyber security needs to be high on the boardroom agenda. A well-planned incident response plan can minimise damage from hackers, which is critical for organisations that hold vast amounts of public data and have precious reputations to uphold.

However, a recent survey by Third Sector and the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) revealed a lack of action, knowledge, training and confidence among not-for-profit organisations when it comes to cyber security risks and how to stay safe. Only half of respondents were fully aware of the potential consequences of a cyber attack on charities and the vast majority (70%) had no plans to deliver cyber security training in the next six months.

So what are the emerging threats you need to be aware of, how can you keep up with them and what does a good incident response plan look like? Moreover, how can you persuade the board and trustees that investment is needed?

Join this Third Sector Insight webinar, produced in partnership with NCSC, to learn about:

  • Emerging threats facing not-for-profit organisations right now and how to spot them
  • How to educate and affect change around the cyber security culture in your organisation, including the role of effective training and getting buy-in from the board
  • How to get started on your cyber security journey with practical advice from cyber security experts and best practice examples from charities
