For voluntary and community organisations in Bradford District:
Cyber Security for Small Charities and Community Groups
What is the National Cyber Security Centre?
The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) aims to make the UK the safest place to live and work online. We want to help you feel better armed to face the challenges of living and working in a digital world.
Do you know how to protect your organisation against a cyber-attack? Have you thought about the risks to your business if you were hacked, phished or your online presence crashed?
Sometimes it's easy to assume that charities and community groups are either too small or too 'nice' to be targeted, but have you thought about the impact a fraudulent invoice getting through the system, how difficult it is to be truly data secure, and how damaging it is to find your email system or website unexpectedly offline? The smallest organisations are the most vulnerable in all sorts of ways. And the average cost to a charity of a cyber security breach has been calculated to be around $1030.00
What will the session cover?
The session will be broken into three main parts;
What cyber attacks could a small charity fall victim to?
What simple steps can you take to enhance your cyber security?
What should we do if we suffer a cyber attack?
Throughout the session, we will help you understand the content through real life examples, videos and most importantly by removing the jargon that can make cyber security seem difficult to understand.
What will the session enable me to do?
The training aims to provide you with an understanding of the basics of cyber security in a small charity, and what steps you should be taking to protect your organisation.
Will I get a certificate?
No, this session does not carry any certification and is not part of a formal training scheme. The sessions are being piloted by NCSC and NAVCA to help raise the awareness of cyber security and the steps small charities can take.
