Policy Monitor is taking part in the IASME Charity Cyber Essentials Awareness Fortnight
6 – 17 November to help protect charities from cyber attack
We are proud to be taking part in the IASME Charity Cyber Essentials Awareness Fortnight which runs between the 6th and 17th of November. Policy Monitor is offering free guidance and discounted services and advice to help charities protect themselves from cyberattacks as threats continue to increase and evolve. Policy Monitor is especially keen to support charities based around Wimbledon and South West London ie the community local to its headquarters.
IASME (Information Assurance for Small and Medium Enterprises), the national organisation which helps advise and certify organisations in cyber security and counter fraud, is focusing on the cyber threats facing the charity sector in its annual Awareness Fortnight. Charities face increased risks from cyberattacks while resources and relevant skills are in short supply. According to IASME, “Our increasingly cashless world is driving a deepening reliance on technology which leaves charities particularly at risk to everyday cyber threats. Our Charity Cyber Essentials Awareness Fortnight hopes to educate charities about the cyber threat they face and help them understand the basic controls they can put in place to protect themselves.”
Nick Denning, CEO, Policy Monitor said, “We are very pleased to be supporting IASME in its Charity Cyber Essentials Awareness Fortnight. We are offering free support and guidance and a discounted package of advice and services to help charities become certified to Cyber Essentials (CE) standards. Meeting this standard helps keep charities safe, enables them to demonstrate security to stakeholders such as volunteers, supporters and regulators, and to make the most of cyber insurance. We are especially happy to help charities in our own community around South West London.”
