Charities have valuable data that can be targeted by cybercriminals. Trust and cyber security are linked.
Obtaining certifications such as Cyber Essentials shows a charity's commitment to protecting data.
We’ve worked with charities for a number of years and understand that there can be difficulties with funding and support, but also the increased pressure as government, industry and customers highlight that charities are one of the most likely sectors to be targeted.
Our Charity scheme will be limited to 25 spaces per year. This is part of our pledge to ensure that we are giving back to UK charities in our own way.
We have created a charity package, This covers essential security measures such as quarterly vulnerability scans and penetration tests, ensuring that your company's digital assets are always protected. As a member of this scheme, you'll have access to the cutting-edge security tool Harpe.
Harpe is a comprehensive security management system that provides real-time insights into your organization's security posture.
With these tools at your disposal, you'll have peace of mind knowing that your charity is always one step ahead of cyber threats.
Join this exciting charity scheme today and continue to make a positive impact on the world while keeping your charity secure!
We have taken some time to identify what we believe the biggest gaps are with security and how we can help.
Charities often struggle to have the time and resources to have someone managing security on a day-to-day basis, this is crucial to allow businesses to meet some of the recommended standards for security, such as Cyber Essentials or ISO27001. Sometimes you can get funding for a one-off piece of work to allow you to carry out some work, but day-to-day activities are often forgotten.
Attackers are always on the lookout for companies to exploit, and the public-facing endpoints are often the first to be attacked. Engaging with a third party or bringing in an internal resource is another expensive task, we have added as part of the package, one penetration test of your chosen external endpoint, this could be your website or CRM system for example - this is carried out by one of our internal experts. To help even further, we are including 4 quarterly vulnerability scans to give you more coverage over the year.
In addition to the above, a very common reason for breaches is your employees being phished. We come across it all the time. In 2021, 323,972 internet users fell victim to a phishing attack and this number is likely to be higher as many attacks go unreported. This makes it critical for us to include some employee protection within the charity bundle. We have been able to include a company subscription for Warden - personal cyber protection for your employees to use if they wish. They can check with the app whether an email is phishing or not and receive notifications if they are involved in hacks.
We have included in our charity package, free access to Harpe, a simple security management system, which will automate and allow you to reduce risk whilst putting you in a position to meet industry-recognised certifications.
In total, the package that we have managed to secure is a total package worth at least £3500 and is going to be limited to 25 spaces per year. This is part of our pledge to ensure that we are giving back to UK charities in our own way, to show support.

Yes, regular penetration testing can be used to demonstrate compliance with regulations such as the GDPR, NIS Directive, PCI-DSS and ISO/IEC 27001. However, it's important to consult with legal and compliance teams to ensure compliance with specific regulations.
Supplier assurance refers to the process of evaluating and certifying the security and compliance of an organisation's suppliers and third-party vendors. It helps organisations identify and mitigate potential cyber security risks associated with their suppliers.
The benefits of supplier assurance include compliance with regulations and standards, risk reduction, cost savings, improved relationships, better decision-making, and increased security.
The Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus programs are beneficial for any organisation that handles sensitive data, is required to comply with certain regulations or industry standards, or is at risk of falling victim to common cyber threats.
The duration of a penetration test can vary depending on the scope and complexity of the test. A basic penetration test may take a few days, while a more complex test could take longer.
