IS Know How began as Robert Stones' University of South Wales Dissertation whilst studying for his BSc Information Security degree, where he chose a project based around 'How Prepared is the Third Sector to Secure their Information' in effect, Cyber Security for Charities, Social Enterprises and Not-for-Profits.
It quickly became clear through initial and then subsequent research, that there was a worrying Third Sector Cyber Security Risk increase in UK. It would seem at first glance that too many organisations lack the knowledge, ability and / or financing to secure their data and protect themselves to the best of their ability.
Not only the above, but after plenty of research there was also found to be an extreme lack of relevant, consistent data and knowledge into this sector, or exactly how it is handling the risks of Cyber Security including associated Data Breaches to present date.
Therefore, Robert Stones felt compelled to begin designing, developing and creating an in-depth survey; a set of various but very pertinent questions to put to those in the sector and to ultimately deliver the first public domain in-depth and immensely relevant UK Third Sector survey results, revolving around Cyber Security & Data Breaches.
Utilising the 'How Prepared is the Third Sector to Secure their Information' survey results and positioning IS Know How to be able to provide the products, services, resources and advice that the sector truly requires.
Expanding with what we believe is the first step for any Third Sector organisation; increasing your Management, Staff & Volunteers baseline knowledge of Information (Cyber) Security by locating already externally produced but perfectly relevant resources, such as the National Archive's Responsible for Information for SME's PowerPoint Training Course.
ISKH doesn't believe in unnecessarily muddying the water, just to put our own authority on everything we offer, due to this often tending to just over complicate the original concerns or issues, which for the Third Sector would just be counter productive.
Already partnering with some very influential and specific subject matter experts in their own right, IS Know How will consistently source the very best, Best of Breed Enterprise Grade Managed Cyber Security for Charities and include a wealth of supportive knowledge and guidance, delivering this and more to our clients.
In the meantime, the first resource we would like to point you to, is the What are the Risks? page. It will hopefully be thought provoking viewing and help you see that there's a huge growing problem that the UK's Third Sector is far from immunity. Do remember, it would be great to tell you that it's all a bad dream and that you aren't at risk but it is a case of when a data breach or cyber security event will happen to your organisation... not if!
