The THINK event will ensure third sector organisations are kept up to date on the latest attack vectors and adapt their policies and solutions accordingly.  Smaller charities are particularly vulnerable and in light of this, the sharing of expertise, pooling resources and cooperation will be high on the agenda.

Raise Employee Awareness, Fight The Latest Threats and Secure Your Perimeter Defences and Donations:

  • Motivations behind attacks.  Discuss the latest attacks and what was behind them to understand what the triggers are and mitigate these risks.
  • Resources.  Share ideas on pooling your resources to ensure guidelines and legislation is adhered to.
  • Volunteers and staff turnover.  Create policies for temporary staff without jeopardising charity gains.
  • Types of threats and their impacts.  Learns from and dissect recent attacks of charities, public and private sector organisations.
  • Technologies and solutions.  Hear form the experts and what research was undertaken to come to the conclusion these solutions are needed.
