Between the 2nd and 6th November 2020, Mitigate Cyber is excited to announce their participation in this years’ #CyberSecureCharities campaign organised by the IASME Consortium, aiming to protect UK-based charities against cyber attacks and breaches.
Improving resilience against cyber criminals is more crucial than ever due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has resulted in millions of employees now working remotely, and charities are no exception. Charity organisations are at high risk of a cyber attack due to the wide range of funding and the processing of personal, financial and commercial data, thus making them a prime target for cyber criminals.
The IASME Consortium is a Government-appointed Cyber Essentials Partner and Mitigate Cyber – along with over fifty partner organisations – are taking part in the charity campaign by offering Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus at a discounted price.
Registered charities based in the UK can receive the Government-backed certification that proves your organisation has the correct defences in place, reducing the risk of an attack or breach.
With a majority of international organisations who now rely on technology and remote working, it is increasingly necessary to make sure that businesses have the appropriate protection and procedures in place to detect and mitigate any risks and potential attacks.
Cyber Essentials Certification protects your organisation from common cyber attacks through identifying risks and vulnerabilities in your systems. It will allow your organisation tender for UK Government and MOD contracts and also lowers your annual insurance premiums.
