With the growing dominance of the digital economy and an increasing number of charities using online platforms as a means of delivering services, all charities need to treat their exposure to cyber crime as a risk area that needs to be addressed.
To assist charities in remaining vigilant, and to implement appropriate defences, the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has produced a useful guide on how to protect a charity from cyber crime. Also available is a new Board Toolkit that trustees can use to encourage essential cyber security discussions with their technical experts.
Charities are reminded that should they fall victim to cyber crime or other forms of fraud they need to report the incident to their regulator.
