Cyber attacks have resulted in financial losses to charities of all sizes. We read all too often of ransomware attacks where perpetrators are demanding large Bitcoin payments in order to release access to a charity's own data and systems: CEO's are also being being impersonated on-line and payments made inadvertently by staff directly diverted to the cyber criminal accounts.
Cyber costs arise not only from the attack itself, but also from remediation and the resultant loss of public trust.
This FREE course and course materials have been developed by the National Cyber Security Centre, The National Association for Voluntary Community Action and pilot CVS organisations to help charities and community groups protect themselves from Cyber Crime.
Phishing, identity theft and ransomware are persistent threats and they all typically start with one malicious E-mail. So, it’s more important than ever to make sure everyone in your organisation is aware of the dangers.
Who should attend?
Representatives from any organisation that has not researched the risks of Cyber Security and instituted procedures and protocols to protect their organisation from the threat of cyber attack.

The course will look at what Cyber crime is and the different forms of attack this can take. Through a mix of practical tasks you will develop a good understanding of potential risks and what to do if your organisation falls victim to a cyber attack.

You will discover why charities and community groups are at risk irrespective of their size, who from and how.
You will be able to recognise and identify different forms of cyber attack.
You will be able to prevent and mitigate the consequences of attack.
The session is being delivered by Keith Johnson, the Development Worker at Hunts Forum.
