Cyber security for charities – decisions and disruptions


A table top exercise in teams.

(Spaces are limited to 30 delegates.)

Every cyber security programme needs leadership buy-in to be successful. Jointly led by City of London Police Cyber Griffin team and the Metropolitan Police Service Cyber Protect team, this exercise will raise awareness of the importance of cyber security to your charity.

You will learn the importance of making timely and correct decisions when it comes to cyber security, including what should be a priority.

Participants will be split into teams and given a yearly budget over four years to protect a fictitious organisation from both physical and cyber threats, using scenarios based on real investigations and current threats.

Teams will discuss the options available and receive feedback on the consequences of their decisions and the cost in terms of cyber protection and finances. A thorough debrief will conclude the session to highlight key learnings.

Key benefits:
• A physical game board makes cyber security easier to understand.
• See first-hand how cyber security can affect a charity’s turnover, reputation and regulation.
• Highlight how cyber and physical security can impact each other.
• A chance to use your problem solving, collaboration, leadership and communication skills to be successful.
• Understand current NCSC and Cyber Griffin security guidance.

Who should attend?
The exercise is primarily aimed at decision-makers within charities, particularly those responsible for governance and risk management, operations, IT and finance functions. It will also be beneficial to other charity staff with varying degrees of technical knowledge.
