Intro to Cyber Security

Introduction to Cyber Security

Does phishing, cookies and pineapples just sound like a weird shopping list to you? If the answer is "Yes" then this course might be for you! 

This free training session Is aimed at small charities and organisations will introduce participants to the basics of Cyber Security. As well as providing top tips and advice on how to protect your organisation.

The charity sector is becoming increasingly vulnerable to cyber fraud. 22% of charities reported a cyber-attack or breach over the last 12 months and the average cost to a charity of a cybersecurity breach has been calculated to be around £1,030. However, more alarmingly, it is estimated that the percentage of organisations who do not realise they have been targeted is much, much higher.

Cybercriminals will often target smaller organisations who think they are too small to attract attention and so have no basic security procedures in place at all.

So, time to do something about it!

This training session will  cover:

  • What is cyber security and what are the main threats that voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations face
  • Look at some basic steps you can do to protect your organisations
  • What to do when things go wrong
