Keeping Safe – Data Security in the Third Sector

26 March 2015

In 2012, 10,000 records were stolen during a hack on the British Pregnancy Advice Service (BPAS). The charity suffered a severe loss of supporter trust and a £200,000 fine in 2014¹. The BPAS had no protocols in place to protect or react to an attack.

The ICO has the power to fine organisations up to £500,000 for data breaches. For charities, however, the implementation of data safeguards is not only a necessary defence but a statement of intent. It builds supporter trust, demonstrates integrity and respect for supporters’ sensitive information.

Here at Third Sector Insight we want to hear your thoughts on today’s digital security threats. We invite you to take this survey in the strictest confidence and it will only take 2 minutes to complete (we know, we timed it!).
