Guidance and Support for Charities
The North West Cyber Resilience Centre understands the challenges facing charities and during this time, we're on hand to support you with the latest guidance below.
Charities by their very nature, hold a huge amount of information that is attractive to hackers. The information held by charities often includes personal, sensitive, and financial data that when in the hands of a cybercriminal can be sold, held at ransom, or used to steal funds.
The Cyber Security Breaches Survey for 2021 revealed that Phishing is the most identified cyber-attack against charities. Among the 26% identifying any breaches or attacks, 79% had phishing attacks, 23% were impersonated and 17% had malware (including ransomware).
