FREE Conference - Protecting your Charity from Cybercrime and Fraud

Alert message sent 23/01/2020 12:07:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police


We are sending you this message as your Neighbourhood Link registration identifies you as having a link to Charity.

If this is not the case, I apologise for the intrusion.

If you do indeed have a connection to a local charity, voluntary group or not for profit organisation, we would like to share the below invitation with you.

Leicestershire Police and Crime Commissioner, Lord Bach and the Leicestershire Police Cybercrime Team would like to invite your charity (maximum of two from each organisation) to a one day FREE conference on “Protecting your charity from cyber-crime and fraud” at the Leicestershire Police Force Headquarters in Enderby. Conference dates are Tuesday 28th January 2020 or Thursday 6th February 2020.  
 
This is a great opportunity to get free advice and gain first-hand experience of how to stop cyber criminals from attacking and disrupting your organisation.
 
Sometimes it's easy to assume that charities won’t get hit or too 'nice' to be targeted by cyber criminals, but not many of us know just how easy it is for a fraudulent email with an attached invoice is to get through the system, how difficult it is to be truly data secure, and how damaging it is to find your email system or website unexpectedly offline.
 
What will the conference cover?
This one day conference will give you the opportunity to learn and ask questions about:
 
•             The current risks facing charities in the digital world including real life examples
•             In real time how cyber criminals operate – a live “hack” demo
•             How to cyber protect yourself at home and in the workplace
•             Why incident management is important to your organisation
