COVID-19 cybercrime risks

The Charity Commission has produced a very good summary of the types of fraud and cybercrime which are particularly prevalent at the moment, and I would encourage you to review it.

Entitled ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19): increased risk of fraud and cybercrime against charities‘ the microsite includes resources such as:

  • Webinar from the Charity Fraud Awareness hub
  • NCSC guidance on phishing attacks
  • Suspicious Email Reporting Service
  • Keeping devices secure
  • Minimising risk when staff work at home
  • Using video conferencing services securely

Please take the time to have a look, and let others in your organisation know of this too.
