We recently heard of a company (SafeStack) which (they say) “helps tiny companies all the way to large MNCs improve their IT security posture.  However, we have found that many small companies, non-profits and charities, in particular, need security but don’t have the funding to look into it.”

Safestack are holding a free event on the 22nd November in Wellington to help small companies. charities etc acquire some basic security skills.  A recent blogpost on the SafeStack website explains why they are doing it. The post starts “Security is a growing area of concern for businesses of all shapes and sizes, but in the not-for-profit sector it’s often treated as something that you’ll get to eventually after you’ve saved the world.

Because charities and social good organisations are typically driven by volunteers, and work with the leanest of budgets, very few ever get round to securing their online world, yet an attack on such an organisation can have a devastating effect.”  <Read the full blogpost here>
