Making Your Charity Cyber-Secure

This event report is written by the NetSquared London team, including Ellie Hale, Matt Moorut, Kate White, and Siddharth Bannerjee.

Although charities too often ignore the risks, stats compiled by the government on cyber threats speak for themselves: 50% of all organisations (not just charities) have experienced a cyberattack in the last year. What’s more, of the companies that suffer cyberattacks, roughly 60% go bankrupt.

The avenues of attack are growing all the time. Whether through malware or full-on spear phishing, the risks are more prevalent than you might think, and potential damage can be crippling for charities.

Why are charities being targeted?

At NetSquared London’s recent meetup on cybersecurity in charities, Nick Denning, CTO at security firm CySure Limited explained that charities are notoriously bad at protecting themselves, making them easy targets for unscrupulous hackers.

Unfortunately, small charities in particular are the most at risk from ransomware and phishing scams as they seldom have policies and processes in place to help their network and users stay secure.

If this sounds familiar, there are steps you can take, and they needn’t be too onerous.

One of the most straightforward measures for charities of all sizes to implement is

Cyber Essentials, the government-backed scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common threats, according to Phil Anthony, founder of CoopSys.
