Charity Commission: protect your charity from fraud and cyber crime

As around 70% of all fraud is now committed online, the Charity Commission provides in-depth guidance on how to protect your charity from fraud and cyber crime – which you can read in full here.

They have now also recommended a training package provided by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) which explains why cyber security is important and how attacks happen. It then covers 4 key areas:

  1. defending yourself against phishing
  2. using strong passwords
  3. securing your devices
  4. reporting incidents

The training is free, easy to use and takes less than 30 minutes to complete. You can access this via the Charity Commission website, or directly from NCSC’s website.
