The purpose of this web site is to give those employees and trustees of UK based charities a basic understanding of Information Security issues, including the Data Protection Act, which are relevant to charities and other charitable bodies.
This web site is particular aimed at small charities to provide those working in them an overview of the following information security subjects
- Information Security & CIA Principle
- Data Protection Act
- Online threats
- Online conduct
- Social networking sites
- Portable data storage & IT systems
This web site also contains self test questions on the subjects above, which it is hoped will show which areas of information security need further revision. There is also a web page (Awareness Links) containing links to other web sites containing information security awareness content.
For those who wish to carry out information security awareness presentations within their respective charity, an example powerpoint presentation is also included (Useful Documents). An information security poster can also be downloaded from this web site.
