Frequently Asked Questions


Why is the Charity and Non-profit Sector particularly vulnerable to Cyber Attacks?

The charity and non-profit sector faces unique vulnerabilities to cyber attacks due to a combination of factors:

  1. Attractive Targets: Charities hold funds, sensitive data, and valuable information that cybercriminals seek for financial gain.
  2. Resource Constraints: Charities may be hesitant to allocate limited resources, including budgets and staff efforts, to cyber security when those resources could directly benefit their core charitable work.
  3. Part-Time Staff and Volunteers: Non-profits often rely on a high volume of part-time staff, including volunteers. These individuals may have limited capacity to absorb complex security procedures, making the organisation more vulnerable.
  4. BYOD Practices: Many charities adopt Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies due to cost considerations. However, personal devices used for work are typically harder to secure and manage compared to centrally issued IT equipment.
  5. Critical Services: Non-profits and charities frequently serve as a supplier of last resort, providing essential services in areas where government or affordable private sector alternatives are lacking.

These factors underscore the importance of recognising and addressing the specific cyber security needs of the charity and non-profit sectors. Implementing tailored cyber security measures and providing support and resources can help mitigate the risks and ensure that these organisations continue their valuable work securely.


What are the Greatest Cyber Security Risks for Non-profits and Charities?

The security risks for non-profits and charities are indeed diverse, but some of the most significant ones include:

    1. Phishing: Phishing attacks are a pervasive threat. cyber criminals use deceptive emails or messages to trick staff or volunteers into revealing sensitive information or clicking on malicious links.
    2. Email Compromise: Email compromise attacks involve cyber criminals gaining unauthorised access to email accounts, often through phishing or social engineering. They can then use these compromised accounts for various malicious purposes, including fraud or further attacks.
    3. Fake Organisations and Websites: Scammers may create fake charities or websites that mimic legitimate non-profit organisations. They use these fraudulent entities to collect donations or steal personal and financial information from well-intentioned donors.
    4. Ransomware: Ransomware attacks can disrupt operations by encrypting critical data and demanding a ransom for decryption keys. Non-profits and charities are attractive targets because they often lack robust cyber security measures.

    To mitigate these risks, non-profits and charities should prioritise cyber security by implementing robust measures, raising awareness among staff and volunteers, and fostering a culture of security. Regular training, strong access controls, and proactive monitoring can significantly enhance their cyber security resilience.


I‘m a Smaller Charity; Should I Really Have to Worry About Hackers?

The short answer is yes.

Just like any other organisation, charities handle financial transactions and rely on electronically stored data for their day-to-day operations. This reliance on technology makes them susceptible to various cyber threats.

Moreover, the outward-facing nature of charities, coupled with the sector’s culture of trust, creates an environment that cybercriminals often exploit. Hackers see charities as potential targets due to the perception of weaker security measures compared to larger corporations, making them particularly vulnerable to criminal activity.

In essence, the size of a charity does not diminish the importance of cyber security. It’s crucial for charities of all sizes to prioritise cyber security measures to protect their valuable data and resources from potential threats.


How Might a Data Breach Affect My Charity?

A data breach can have severe consequences for a charity, both financially and reputationally. Charities may face hefty fines if they experience data breaches resulting in the loss or exposure of sensitive information. These fines, coupled with negative publicity, can have a devastating impact on a charity’s operations and donor trust.

For instance, a UK transgender charity was fined £25,000 by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) for failing to adequately secure the personal data of its users. This breach resulted in the names and email addresses of 550 individuals becoming searchable online, highlighting the real-world consequences of inadequate data protection measures.

In addition to potential financial penalties, charities may also experience a loss of donor confidence and trust, leading to decreased support and funding. Therefore, safeguarding sensitive data and implementing robust cyber security measures is essential for protecting the integrity and reputation of a charity.


How can I Educate Staff and Volunteers Who Work for My Charity about Cyber Security?

Educating staff and volunteers about cyber security is crucial for protecting your charity from cyber threats, especially if you lack a dedicated IT department. With so much guidance available, it can be challenging for small organisations to know where to start.

At OneCollab, we offer bespoke Cyber Security Training programmes designed specifically for charities. Our training is tailored for individuals with no prior cyber knowledge and focuses on improving your organisation’s cyber resilience. Key components of our training include:

  • Protecting Your Organisation Against Ransomware: Learn strategies to defend against ransomware attacks and understand how to respond if one occurs.
  • Securing Employee Devices: Ensure that the devices used by your employees and volunteers are secure, reducing the risk of breaches.
  • Creating Strong Passwords: Understand the importance of strong passwords and learn how to create and manage them effectively.
  • Defending Against Phishing: Identify phishing attempts and take proactive measures to prevent falling victim to these attacks.

Our interactive training puts your staff in the driving seat. They will engage in activities, answer questions, identify potential issues, and suggest how to prevent and tackle common cyber security challenges.
