UK charities hold funds, personal, financial and commercial data (and other information) that is of interest or monetary value to a range of cyber criminals and other groups.
Some charities are aware their data is sensitive, valuable and vulnerable to attack. However, the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) believe that many charities - particularly smaller ones - do not realise this and do not perceive themselves as targets.
This new report from the NCSC outlines the cyber threat that charities of all sizes now face. We encourage all charities, especially smaller ones, to make use of the NCSC’s guidance on reducing the impact of cyber attacks (PDF).
