Did you know that over 40% of charities rate their cyber security knowledge as ‘low’ or ‘very low’?

SCVO are helping charities understand what it means to be cyber resilient and are opening up the SCVO Cyber Essentials Grants Scheme to help small to medium sized charities achieve Cyber Essentials accreditation.

You can apply for the SCVO Cyber Essentials Grant from 9am on 21 September 2017.

To qualify, you must meet the following criteria:

  •        SCVO Cyber Essentials Grants are available to registered Scottish charities with either their own internal IT support staff or with a contracted IT supplier.
  •        The maximum annual income threshold to receive the Cyber Essentials Grant is £4 million.
  •        It is the responsibility of the qualifying organisation to contact and contract a supplier to carry out the accreditation.

Please visit this page for more information about applying.

The application window closing date for Round 1 of the scheme is 20 October 2017.
