New Frontier Cyber Security Challenge

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Most staff use the internet and email systems as a means of communication, invoicing and record keeping. Each person is a possible weak link in your chain of security as they may be approached by a fraudulent operator. Increasingly, NGOs are being targeted by those who set up systems to breach our security systems, with our member services falling prey to these attacks. New, sophisticated schemes are more and more difficult to identify.

These activities cost our sector a lot of money and impact both small and large organisations. It’s been said that it’s not a matter of whether your agency will be cyber attacked, but when. So how do we ensure that cyber breaches do not occur?
