Get ready for Charity Fraud Awareness Week

17th October 2019

Next week is Charity Fraud Awareness Week 2019 and this year will offer charities a raft of ways to help the sector protect themselves from criminals including the risks of cyber crime.

Fraud costs the charity sector up to £2.3 billion according to the report Tackling Charity Fraud: Prevention is Better Than Cure, which was published by The Charity Commission and the charity Fraud Advisory Panel last year.

The report explains the range of different cyber attacks being used to target charities, some of which are outlined in this article from Charity Digital News. You’ll also find five ways that you can proactively take part in Charity Fraud Awareness Week and help to protect your organisation from fraud.
