Charity Commission and partners launch fraud resilience survey
Fraud is a growing problem for charities, costing hundreds of millions, potentially billions, of pounds each year. Roughly 70% of all fraud is now committed online, meaning a charity’s valuable funds, operations, data and reputation can be at risk from a wide range of fraud and cyber-crime. It’s never been more important to understand fraud risk and to boost your charity’s cyber security.
The Charities Commission, in partnership with the Fraud Advisory Panel, the have launched a survey, aimed at helping the Charities Commission get a better understanding both of charities’ resilience to fraud and their levels of cyber security.
If you are one of the charities contacted by the Charities Commission, please do try to complete the survey as honestly as possible. We estimate it should only take around 15 minutes to do. If you are not contacted by us, there’s no need to take any action now.
All answers will be treated in the strictest confidence and will not be disclosed or shared with persons or organisations outside of the Commission.
The survey will run for four weeks, and the Commission intends to publish the findings of the research later this year.
