Cyber Essentials Certification - Cyber Safe Charities!
UK charities play a major contribution to supporting their chosen groups throughout the UK. For many people, support from charities is a lifeline. Their work, however, also necessitates that they hold personal, commercial and financial information which has a clear value to cyber-criminals. Coupled with a reliance on IT, this sadly means charities are as vulnerable to cyber-attacks as any other business.
Addressing resilience within charitable organisations can be a challenge. Many do not perceive themselves as open to the cyber-threat; a threat which, in reality, is unbiased as to an organisation’s size or sector. Whilst targeted attacks are still commonplace, so too are attacks which target a vulnerability rather than a specific person or organisation. Be it targeted or not, the consequences of a cyber-breach can be devastating.
The IASME Consortium, a leading Accreditation Body for the government-backed Cyber Essentials certification scheme, is launching a week-long discount aimed at encouraging registered charities to improve their resilience to online threats. There are many benefits of a cyber essentials certification for a charity, with up to 80% of common cyber threats being reduced. Together with IASME, we are offering discounted certifications on schemes which demonstrate charities have recognised best practice protections in place. This campaign will take place for a limited time between 29 April – 3 May 2019.

The IASME Governance Self-Assessment - Cyber Safe Charities
The IASME Governance standard was developed over several years during a government funded project to create a cyber security standard which would be an affordable and achievable alternative to the international standard, ISO27001.
The IASME Governance standard allows the small companies and charities in a supply chain to demonstrate their level of cyber security for a realistic cost and indicates that they are taking good steps to properly protect their customers information.
Please note – This discount is only available for registered charities looking to become Cyber Essentials certified by the IASME governance standard. If you are an organisation looking to become certified please view our IASME self-assessment in our online shop here.
