Protecting your charity from fraud – recent Commission alerts

Posted by Kirsteen Hook, 26th March 2018
The National Cyber Security Centre (”NCSC”) has launched its first cyber security guidance specifically for the charity sector.

The guidance follows the first ever threat assessment of the sector. The assessment found a number of tricks being employed to defraud smaller charities through online attacks.

The guidance will hopefully give charities the tools and help to be able to defend itself against possible future attacks.

The assessment revealed that charities, funds, details on beneficiaries and details of supporters have all been targeted. The NCSE has also published a guide aimed exclusively at smaller charities which focuses on low cost steps to improve their security against online attacks.
