Forth Valley Cyber Resilience: Why It Should Matter to the Third Sector

calendar icon 26 April 2019
From 2:00 pm until 4:00 pm

With support from Scottish Government’s Cyber Resilience Unit and Codebase Stirling, Stirlingshire Voluntary Enterprise (SVE), CVS Falkirk and Clackmannanshire TSI (CTSI) are holding "Forth Valley Cyber Resilience: Why It Should Matter to the Third Sector".

The session will take place on Friday 26th April, 2pm – 4pm in the Codebase Stirling building, 8 - 10 Corn Exchange Road, Stirling, FK8 2HU. Places are free, but limited to 30, so booking is essential.

Cybercrime (including hacking, computer viruses and email scams) is increasingly targeting charities, social enterprises, and voluntary and community groups, and staff and volunteers need to know what to look out for to keep their organisations safe.

The session is running as part of Cyber Scotland Week 2019, a joint initiative between Scottish Government and ScotlandIS, taking place Monday 22nd April – Sunday 28th April.

A first of its kind for cyber in Scotland, Cyber Scotland Week draws together events across the country to showcase innovation taking place in the sector, while raising awareness of good cyber resilience practice and promoting a career within the industry. The Week aims to bring together influencers, experts and the next generation of talent to explore and learn about the potential rewards and challenges in this fast-changing threat landscape. 

Join us in Forth Valley for this interactive session, providing an introduction to cyber resilience, and some tips on how to avoid becoming a victim of cyber criminals.

Staff and volunteers of third sector organisation across Forth Valley are welcome. No prior experience or knowledge of cyber protection is necessary.
