Event Details

Join ScotlandIS and SCVO for an unparalleled opportunity to understand/enhance your charity’s cyber resilience at our upcoming full-day conference, tailored specifically for the third sector, taking place on the 28th of February as part of CyberScotland Week at the Scotsman Hotel in Edinburgh.

As organisations move online they are more vulnerable to malicious cyber activity and unfortunately the third sector is not exempt. The good news is that protecting your IT systems and data, therefore reducing the risk of cyber attack, is easier than you might think. Learn more about the Scottish Government’s Third Sector Cyber Resilience Action Plan and the steps SCVO are taking, in partnership with Scottish Government, to develop and implement it across the third sector.

Delve into real-world insights with compelling case studies that discuss the impact of a cyber breach, and connect with like-minded people within the third sector. Our interactive workshops led by industry experts will empower you with practical skills, allowing you to actively engage and apply cyber resilience concepts to your unique context. With workshops aimed at all roles, whether you are a board member/trustee, IT specialist or concerned employee.

Don’t miss this opportunity to strengthen your organisation against cyber threats and contribute to a resilient future for Scotland.
