Cyber Essentials for Charities Week 8th – 12th November 2021


4Secure are proud to confirm that we are once again doing our bit for charities by taking part in the Cyber Essentials for Charities campaign, where will be offering a 10% discount to UK registered charities for all Cyber Essentials certifications. The campaign has been created by IASME to educate charities about the cyber threat they face and inform them about the benefits of Cyber Essentials.

Charities are sitting on a data treasure trove. Valuable information on beneficiaries, supporters and volunteers as well as invoice and payment details can be sold by cyber criminals and used to identify other targets.

In the present digital, post-COVID age, trust and cyber security are interwoven. By achieving Cyber Essentials, a charity can demonstrate commitment to cyber security and protection of customer data.


What is Cyber Essentials and how can it help?


Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective, Government-backed scheme that will help you to protect your organisation, whatever its size, against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks.


Why should you get Cyber Essentials?


  • You reassure customers that you are working to secure your IT against cyber attack
  • Attract new business with the promise you have cyber security measures in place
  • Have a clear picture of your organisation’s cyber security level
  • Most Government contracts require Cyber Essentials certification


Charities can get started on their journey by accessing the free Cyber Essentials Readiness Tool, developed on behalf of the National Cyber Security Centre by IASME. The Readiness tool is an interactive set of questions that addresses different parts of your organisation’s security. Advice and guidance is available specifically for those in the charity sector and a step by step action plan is tailored to your requirements based on your answers to the questions. You will receive specific help in the areas that you need to address in order to achieve Cyber Essentials.
