10th June 2019

It’s an incredible responsibility running a charity…

… Don’t let the threat of a cyber attack keep you awake at night!

With ever-increasing pressures to secure funds, drive income and support the key stakeholders in your target communities, we understand the challenges facing the not-for-profit and charitable sector.

Last year more 22% of charities were subject to cyber attacks, with damage ranging from £300 to £100,000, eating into vital funds.

As a Government-accredited organisation, we work with the National Cyber Security Centre to help educate and support organisations of all sizes prepare themselves in an increasingly criminal cyber world.

We are passionate about working with our customers to ensure their hard-earned funds are safe from harm, and efforts and energy directed towards equipping them for the future and supporting their ability to deliver against organisational objectives.
