If you are a small UK based community group, you might be wondering how to protect your organisation from cyber threats. Cyber security is not only important for big businesses, but also for small charities and non-profits that rely on technology to operate and communicate. The session will introduce you to 5 simple steps that the National Cyber Security Centre recommends for improving your cyber resilience.

You will also learn about various resources that you can use and share with your staff, volunteers and communities to raise awareness and promote best practice.

Course format

Group introductory training webinar

This session is an online live-format webinar. As with all of Superhighways’ online training, there will be some interactivity, which may include asking you to contribute to the chat, take part in polls or join a short breakout session for a conversation with other participants.

Joining by video will give you the best possible experience – but isn’t essential throughout.

We may ask you to introduce yourselves. There will be a chance to ask questions.
