Cyber Security Training for Small Charities

February 27, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Do you know how to protect your organisation against a cyber-attack? 

Have you thought about the risks to your business if you were hacked, phished or your online presence crashed?  

Thanks to NAVCA and the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), we have been given the opportunity, knowledge and resources to deliver half day workshops for the Voluntary & Community Organisations around Cyber Security.

We would also like this to be an opportunity for organisations to network with each other and we will provide a catered networking lunch at the end of the session.

This will be FREE for all Voluntary & Community Organisations.


Sometimes it’s easy to assume that Voluntary & Community Organisations are either too small or too ‘nice’ to be targeted, but we all know how easy it is for a fraudulent invoice to get through the system, how difficult it is to be truly data secure, and how damaging it is to find your email system or website unexpectedly offline. The smallest organisations are often the most vulnerable in all sorts of ways and the average cost to a charity of a cyber security breach has been calculated to be around £1030.

What will the session cover? 

The session will be broken into three main parts;

  • What cyber attacks could a small charity might fall victim to?
  • What simple steps can you take to enhance your cyber security?
  • What should we do if we suffer a cyber attack?

Throughout the session, we will help you understand the content through real life examples, videos and most importantly by removing the jargon that can make cyber security seem difficult to understand.

What will the session enable me to do? 

The training aims to provide you with an understanding of the basics of cyber security in a small charity, and what steps you should be taking to protect your organisation. After the session you will be provided with NCSC’s Cyber Security: Small Charity Guide, and Actions Checklist to help you put your new knowledge into practice

Sign me up!

If your organisation would like to book a place on this session, please email or text me with your name and organisation to emma.worsley@cvac.org.uk or 07929291249.  If the workshop is fully booked, we will add you to the waiting list and alert you to the date of the next date.

PLEASE NOTE:  Initially we will only be able to offer 1 place per organisation.
