Cyber threats to UK charities are real, significant and on the increase. Computer hacking attacks, data breaches and online fraud are now a major concern for all organisations, large or small, particularly in light of the GDPR.

There is no fixed methodology for attackers, so all UK charities need to understand how to address cyber-related risk, however many are navigating this landscape without the in-house knowledge and expertise to be confident that their charity is adequately protected.

Andy Larkum, from ADL Consulting, will try to alleviate some of anxiety around this issue by explaining what people mean when they talk about cyber security and what your organisation can do to protect itself against the most prolific threats. He will also suggest some questions that you could be asking your organisation or IT provider to ensure that they are also addressing your cyber security and will introduce the UK Government’s Cyber Essentials guidance, that has five technical controls that will help you to guard against the most common cyber threats.


This is open to all Pears Grantees but will be particularly relevant for chief executives, senior management and trustees. If you’d like to book a place please contact  Rachel Franklin.
