Cyber Resilience for Charities.

Written by

A Round Table Event for Charities

Charities are increasingly reliant on IT and technology and are falling victim to a range of malicious cyber activity. The recent government Charity Sector Threat Assessment indicates that losing access to this technology, having funds stolen or suffering a data breach through a cyber-attack can be devastating, both financially and reputationally. However, many charities do not realise that their data is sensitive, valuable and vulnerable to attack. Introduction of the General Data Protect Regulation (GDPR) adds new obligations to implement, and be able to demonstrate, good data safeguarding principles, adding further stress to often under resourced security teams.

A variety of checklists and guidance is available online for protecting against cyber-attacks but without a coherent cyber strategy that sets direction for the organisation, measures the effectiveness of cyber initiatives and seeks to change behaviors, cyber security can become counterproductive and a barrier to operating rather than an enabler.

We are arranging a round table event to discuss the cyber and data protection challenges faced by charities and what can be done to ensure risks are managed in a pragmatic and cost-effective manner. We will case studies and practical examples to demonstrate how good security practice can be embedded within charity organisations so that it becomes part of ‘business as usual’. The output from the session will be documented in a white paper and shared with the attendees.

The Charities Cyber Resilience round table event will be held at our head office in Birmingham on 27th March 2019. This is a free to attend event for senior stakeholders within the charity sector interested in building sustainable cyber resilience. The event provides an opportunity to share views and experiences, discuss best-practise, network and possibly collaborate with other interested parties.
