Funded by City Bridge Trust, the #CyberSafeLambeth initiative offers free GDPR training for charities in Lambeth
Individuals that lead in IT within charities will be able to attend free General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance and cybersecurity training, where they will be given expert guidance, support and instruction, thanks to new funding by City Bridge Trust.
#CyberSafeLambeth is a training programme that educates IT Manager level staff in local charities about GDPR and offers insight and knowledge to overcome cybersecurity threats and work more effectively.
The in-depth training programme will run across a number of days and will educate Lambeth-based charity IT professionals about key aspects of cybersecurity and the implications of GDPR, which comes into force from 25 May 2018.
The programme, which is being funded by City Bridge Trust, will require all trainees to commit to help at least one other, smaller Lambeth charity through The Integrate Agency CIC’s innovative ‘Hire a Volunteer’ platform.
This world class training opportunity will be available for Lambeth-based IT manager level charity professionals. Each will be taught about threats and trends within the industry, providing them with the skills and know how to confidently meet the requirements for GDPR.
Eoin Heffernan, Founder of Integrate said: “We are delighted to be able to offer cybersecurity training to local charities and reach out to train charity IT professionals working in the London Borough of Lambeth.
