Standing in the face of a cyber incident

  • Start: 14th May, 2024 @ 10:15AM

In 2022, Scottish Action for Mental Health (SAMH) was the victim of a “sophisticated and criminal” cyber attack that impacted both the phone lines and emails of the charity. As a result of the attack, more than 4,000 digital files were stolen from the SAMH, and this has left a lasting impression on the organisation.

Ensuring that all charity and non-profit organisations remain safe and secure is crucial for you to continue delivering the support services that your people need. To help other charity and non-profit organisations to prevent these types of attacks from happening in the future, John Stoner from SAMH will be joining us for a hybrid event to discuss the impact the attack had on their organisation, how they rectified it, and where they are now.

Make sure to join on Tuesday 14th May for a webinar to discover in-depth what happened in the 2022 SAMH cyber incident and what preventative measures you should be implementing to ensure this doesn’t happen to your organisation.
