The biggest risks to charities (and how to prevent them) [Video]

A charity’s reputation is a vital part of its ability to raise funds and continue delivering good work. Efficient spending, transparency, and ethical practices, including the protection of donors and beneficiaries’ data, are all part of managing a reputation and keeping it clean. Though trust in charities “remains higher than in most other parts of society”, according to the Charity Commission, there is also a “stubbornly persistent scepticism regarding how charities use their money and how they behave.” With high-profile crises in the sector in recent years, including data breaches and funding controversies, donors, both existing and potential, need to feel confident that the charities they support are managing risks appropriately.

Attendees can expect to learn: – The importance of transparency with supporters – How to respond to a cyber breach – Salient regulations to consider, including GDPR and more
