Cyber Security advice for smaller Charities

Smaller charities often lack the cyber security resources that their larger counterpart businesses have and this can make them a tempting as well as a reasonably easy target for cyber criminals such as fraudsters and extortionists.

The 2019 DCMS breach survey by UK Gov reported that 22% of charities (2 in 10 charities) identified cyber security breaches or attacks in the last 12 months.
The average annual cost or charities that lost data or assets after breaches were £9,470.
Even then, 44% of all charities don’t protect themselves with the right cyber security tools, as they don’t believe they are at risk.

The most significant security threats are outlined in our video below by our security expert, along with the cyber security tools which can be used to provide security against these threats:

  • Ransomware
  • Weak Passwords 
  • Out of Date Software
  • Lost Mobile Devices
