Cyber security in charities

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) published a report on Monday which concludes that charities lack skills and understanding about cybersecurity.  The report says that charities face many barriers when it comes to engaging with the issue, including competing priorities for time and resources, and staff not necessarily being equipped with the knowledge and skills to deal with the issue.  It recommends basic awareness raising among staff and trustees, and upskilling those responsible for cyber security so that they know the basic technical controls that can be put in place.
