Two free services that will help improve cyber security
The NCSC is running two pilots which offer free tools and resources for registered charities in Northern Ireland.
Web Check and Mail Check are aimed towards improving the cyber security and safety of charities by providing important checks on internal systems, websites, and communications.
The two pilots can vastly improve your charity’s cyber security. Each pilot has a limited number of spaces available, so find out more about the services below and sign-up and register your charity.
Web Check helps you identify and fix common security issues in your websites.
Website vulnerabilities result from misconfigurations or software flaws which might be exploited by an attacker. Web Check checks your websites for common web vulnerabilities and misconfigurations and tells you: what you need to worry about, when you need to worry about it and what you need to do about it.
It is easy to use and doesn’t require a high level of technical skill.
Mail Check assists you with email security configuration and reporting.
High-profile brands, including charities, are often spoofed by attackers using phishing emails and spreading malware. This reduces trust in these brands and allows phishing and malware campaigns to be more effective.
Mail Check is a pilot that will allow charities to assess email security compliance. Putting in place the correct technical security measures will help maintain the integrity of emails by ensuring the content is not altered or read in transit, arrives in its intended state and comes from a legitimate sender.
* NCSC will ask you for feedback during the pilot and access may be withdrawn once the pilot has ended.
