With cyber-attacks continuing to increase in frequency and severity across all sectors, the Australian Signals Directorate is encouraging charities and not-for-profit organisations to take action to protect their online systems.

Charities and not-for-profits can be vulnerable to cyber incidents because they may not have resources to implement robust cyber security measures. Cyber incidents for these organisations are often costly, leading to the loss of sensitive and valuable information, service disruptions, unauthorised alterations to systems, reputational damage and long recovery processes.

We have advice for Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits, including a Cyber Security Checklist for Charities and Not-for-Profits. The checklist can help charities and non-profits improve their cyber security through easy-to-follow steps and links to best-practice advice. Our advice can support you in a range of cyber security efforts, including securing your customer data, understanding cyber threats to your organisation and completing exercises to mitigate cyber threats.

Charities and not-for-profits can also join ASD’s free Cyber Security Partnership Program as a Network Partner to receive the latest cyber security insights and advice.
