Overview
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.

Why cybersecurity is essential for charitable organisations

We have taken some time to identify what we believe the biggest gaps are with security and how we can help.

Security management

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.

Hacking of external services

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.

Risk of ransomware and phishing

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.

The Charity Cyber Pack

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.
