Charity News: The risks from cyber crime

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has published a new report that sets out the cyber threat that all charities now face, noting that in their 2022 survey of cyber security breaches 30% of charities had experienced a cyber attack during the previous 12 months, with over a third of those attacks having an impact on services and nearly a fifth resulting in a ‘negative outcome’ for the charity concerned.

The report highlights reasons why the charity sector can be particularly vulnerable to cyber attack and sets out some of the ways charities can be attacked such as phishing, ransomware or business email compromise.

Included within the report are links to a range of guidance and resources available to charities to help protect them from cyber attack, tailored for charities of all sizes.
