Cyber Essentials – Giving back to those that give the most

Discounted Cyber Essentials for registered charities

UK charities hold valuable financial information and sensitive personal and commercial data. It comes as no surprise that charities are a significant target when it comes to cyber criminals. This summer The Charity Commission confirmed that 30 UK charities have been affected by the Blackbaud ransomware attack. Overall, a quarter of UK charities have experienced a cyber attack in the last 12 months according to a Government report published earlier this year.

To help we’ve teamed up with IASME Consortium to provide charities with a discounted rate for Cyber Essentials certification during 2-9th November.

What savings can I expect?

The Cyber Essentials scheme addresses the five core technical controls that have been proven to prevent 80% of internet born attacks. The Cyber Essentials certification also include automatic cyber liability insurance for any UK organisation that certifies their whole organisation and have less than £20m annual turnover (terms apply) £̶3̶0̶0̶ ̶+̶ ̶V̶A̶T̶ ̶ £225 + VAT.
