How to ensure you recover from a cyber attack with Alison Stone

Cyber attacks are increasing all the time with 26% of charities reporting being victim to an attack in 2020. Join this workshop to learn how to plan in advance to ensure that, should this be you, your recovery is as pain free as it can be.  


This workshop is aimed at anyone who is working in the third sector and is looking to protect themselves online.


What you will take away from this workshop:


  • An understanding of how you can proactively plan to ensure that, if you get hit by a cyber attack, you can move quickly into recovery mode.  
  • What you need to do if you are subject to an attack.  
  • Things to think about during an incident, such as reputation management, business continuity etc.

This session is open to any charity sector employees and volunteers across the UK. Where spaces are limited priority will be given to grant holders of The William Grant Foundation, The Robertson Trust, Inspiring Scotland, The National Lottery Community Fund and The RS MacDonald Charitable Trust.
