    Many modern charities rely on technology and data for the day to day running of their organisations.

    The trouble is, these advancements in technology bring with them a whole host of new and evolving risks. From external threats to internal errors, there are many factors that could result in your charity grinding quickly to a halt. Whether it be a human mistake within your team, a virus in your network or a hacker on a mission to bring down your website, there’s an increasingly large number of ways for your charity to end up in a tricky situation with the media spotlight looming.

    Until recently, not-for-profits felt like they were exempt from these kinds of attacks, unfortunately this couldn’t be further from the truth with over 22% of UK charities reporting being attacked in 2019 alone. Worse still is the average annual cost after a breach which for UK charities stands at a eye-watering £9,740.  (Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2019 – Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport).

    Charity Cyber Insurance FAQ's
    Does your charity need cyber insurance?
    More UK charities are relying on technology for the everyday running of their organisation, as a result cyber crime and attacks are also on the rise. With more than 1 in 5 charities attacked last year alone it’s worth considering a charity cyber policy if:

    • You use a computer for the everyday running of your organisation.
    • You take card payments or make electronic payments.
    • Your organisation has a website.
    • You hold onto customer, supplier or employee information.
    What data is covered?
    Almost every type of data is available with a cyber insurance policy. It’s important to note however that individual policies don’t necessarily protect all the data your charity or not-for-profit relies on.

    Understanding what you need to protect and the coverage being offered is the best way to remove gaps in cover. Alternatively speak to the team of experts at ThirdSectorProtect about receiving a quote that meets your organisations needs at a competitive premium.

    We have state of the art IT protection, do we still need cyber liability?
    Whilst having the latest technology, encryption and firewalls will reduce the likelihood of a breach happening from an external source, many UK charity cyber breaches occur as a result of human error. This can be anything from a laptop left on the train to a donor list thrown away without being shredded. 

    Unfortunately employees often contribute to the threat of cyber attacks without even realising, having a suitable cyber liability policy in place will give you peace of mind that you’re protected in the event of an attack.
