A scary statistic in the recent Tessian report on the Psychology of Human Error states that a third of employees rarely or never think about cyber security at work. It is frequently cited that humans are the weakest link when it comes to cyber security... in truth, your people could be your biggest asset when provided with the correct education about cyber awareness and prevention tactics.
Join us at this informative seminar, hosted by SCVO and The Royal Bank of Scotland where we provide an overview of the current cyber and fraud threats to the third sector and what simple actions can be undertaken to protect both individuals and the organisations they work for.
It is troubling to think that charities and organisations in the third sector may be targeted by cyber criminals and fraudsters - sadly, hackers and fraudsters do not differentiate between types of businesses. Fraud poses serious financial threats to us all in both our professional and private lives and you are far more likely to fall victim to this type of crime than any other in the UK.
Join Ally Stewart, Fraud Analyst at The Royal Bank of Scotland and Alison Stone, Cyber Co-ordinator at SCVO at a webinar which will provide a review of the most common types of fraud along with providing plenty of practical advice for you and your charity on how to protect against these.
Topics covered will include:
- Top threats – Email Scams & Invoice Redirection
- The role of social engineering plays in most common fraud types
- Financial Malware & Phishing
- Smishing and Vishing
Hints and tips on how to stay safe online and beyond
- Alasdair Stewart - Fraud Awareness Analyst, The Royal Bank of Scotland
