Invitation: Charity Fraud & Cyber Crime Briefing - 17th October 2019, Hastings
In conjunction with respected charity accountants, Williams Giles, UK Charity Insurance is pleased to invite you to the next briefing in our series designed to aid leaders of VCOs in your governance roles and give you the tools you need to perform your duties effectively.
Join us to benefit from some FREE, non-technical advice delivered by charity sector experts across two separate disciplines. Alex Ffrench from Williams Giles will share on 'Fraud: Common Themes & Case Studies' while Neil Franklin of UK Charity Insurance will highlight best practice on 'Planning ahead to survive the effects of financial and cyber crime'.
Learning Outcomes (CPD: 2hrs)
This session will provide an insight into some common types of fraud seen in charities and some of the steps that can be taken to protect charities from fraud. We will look at a few examples of actual frauds that have taken place and explore what could have been done to prevent these in the first place.
We'll then discover what can be done to ensure your charity is prepared financially, practically and reputationally for the effects, costs and disruption caused by a cyber attack, data breach or other financial crime.
Who should attend
Charity Trustees, Treasurers, Finance Managers and anyone else in a leadership role within a local charity or community group looking to develop an understanding of their duties and responsibilities around good governance and risk. Neither topic assumes you're an IT geek or a financial whiz - though it's OK if you are.

You'll find us on the 5th Floor, Cavendish House, Breeds Place, Hastings, TN34 3AA (signposted Chris Knott Insurance).
