In March 2018 the Charity Commission supported the National Cyber Security Centre in the development of the first, dedicated cyber security guide for charities.
Charities are not immune to cyber-crime and the advice contained in the guide will be relevant to all charities, though it’s likely that smaller charities will especially benefit from the practical tips and guidance on offer. But, good practice will only be effective if everyone plays their part, seeking out and applying relevant advice to boost their charity’s resilience to the growing threat of cyber-crime.
Taking even a few of the simple steps recommended in the guide will be a good start for in protecting charities from harm.
