Data is an organisation’s most precious resource, and as recent news stories on security vulnerabilities to older versions of Internet Explorer and the internet itself have highlighted, we need to make sure our computers, use of the internet and data is secure.

In this free webinar Andy Taylor, Fellow of the British Computer Society, will update charities on the latest best practices and easy, free and low cost things they can do to improve security and keep their computers and data safe.

Some of the topics we'll cover are:

* security breaches and vulnerabilities in the news
* risk assessments
* quick and easy - keeping your computers safe and secure
* security on the go - mobile devices
* encrypting email
