With GDPR coming into force in May 2018, we are keen to catalyse IT manager level volunteers to be provide support for small, local charities that would otherwise not able to access this expertise.
Our innovative programme will ensure that IT professionals working for charities are equipped with the relevant knowledge and skills they need to confidently address GDPR for their organisations and volunteer their time for another local charity. Another bonus is that it’s completely free, so there’s no reason for people not to get involved.”
Statistics have revealed that only 14% of charitable organizations believe that they are well-protected against cyber threats and data breaches, suggesting that this training programme couldn’t be expanding at a more relevant time.
Alison Gowman, Chairman of the City of London Corporation’s City Bridge Trust Committee, commented: “This programme is extremely relevant in today’s society where cybercrime is unfortunately increasingly common.
“These training workshops will equip charitable organisations with all the skills and knowledge they need to avoid being victims of scams or any criminal activity online, which can frequently target the most vulnerable people. City Bridge Trust is committed to tackling disadvantage across the capital and making London a fairer and better place live.”
#CyberSafeLambeth will run on 5th and 6th of February at the Roots and Shoots conference hall. Tickets for both days are available from Eventbrite
