Organisations are moving en-masse to Cloud services such as Microsoft 365 and Google Apps, and this changes each and every organisations cyber threat profile. Cyber criminals on the internet are very aware of this tectonic shift, and are taking full advantage of poorly configured or inadequately protected services to steal data, abuse resources and extort victims for money.

In our webinar Maritz Cloete, Director of CS Risk Management, our specialist cyber security consultancy covered the risks associated with the current cybercrime threat. He takes you on a journey through a selection of the charity sector cyber security attacks he has been involved over the last few months.

He discusses the common technical and organisational weaknesses that made these attacks possible, what the attackers managed to achieve as part of the attack, and the negative impact it made. You will also learn what you can do to improve your defensive posture and reduce the risk that using Cloud services could pose.

Any breach affecting client details, financial and special category data is typically very serious. The cost of a breach or hack is high in not only monetary terms but operationally and, in addition, reputational damage is at stake. Employees working from home considerably adds to this risk and relevant assessments should be carried out to ensure protection of organisational assets.
