If you want a more detailed approach to cyber risk management in your organisation, this page is for you. It takes you beyond the five basic steps.
When you’re ready to go beyond the basics in cybersecurity, start with questions like these.
This webinar introduces you to cyber risk management concepts and planning and the government’s Cyber Essentials certification programmes. It’s produced by Zurich Insurance for NCVO.
Here’s a list of trusted sources of advice that’ll help you when you've addressed the basics.
There’s a small charities page on the website of the leading government agency working on cyber security. It has an introduction to threat assessment and other useful links. These include a downloadable colour pdf guide that contains similar information to our five basic steps. It's relevant to all small organisations.
Charity Digital produce advice that’s designed with the needs of community groups and organisations in mind. The hub has the essential information you need to be secure and webinars, training and skills sessions to take you beyond the basics.
Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus are government backed certification programmes. They’re for organisations with larger systems, more sensitive data to protect or a higher profile. But anyone can use it. If you want a formal approach to cyber risk management and certification then take a look. There’s a cost, depending on the level you follow.
Make sure you find a National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) approved programme not an alternative.
