Charity cyber guide: Your defence against digital risk

Digital technology has enabled charities to do more. It has created opportunities for innovative new fundraising ideas, helped save time and resource and allowed us to store information more efficiently than ever before.

On the other hand, the relentless evolution of cyber crime has highlighted the many vulnerabilities which exist for organisations and individuals alike.

The consequences of a cyber attack can be far-reaching and include risks such as negative impact on their reputation, loss of data as well as the financial impact, but the risk of cyber crime itself also causes concern. In response, we’ve put together a guide of the risks in the sector which are most regularly experienced by charities, endorsed by the Charities Security Forum.

This guide provides accessible information about:
• The ways in which charities could find themselves exposed to the cyber security threat.
• The implications of a cyber attack.
• The steps third sector organisations can take to protect themselves.
• Cyber insurance solutions.
