• What We Do

    The ubiquity of and reliance on technology in organisations’ operations and business models comes with security challenges. Organisations need to safeguard against cyber-adversity to protect their critical information. However, competing demands on time and resources often result in inadequate security measures – especially in the not-for-profit sector.

    Recognising this challenge, we seek to enhance cyber-security practices in charities, social enterprises, and not-for-profit-organisations by providing pro-bono consultancy services. Our objective is to help mitigate cyber-risks by raising awareness, assisting with policy and governance, and advising on preventive security measures.

    Outreach: Voluntary Community Sector Forum

    OxSecure with Astons Online and BSC at Funding and Information Fair

    It was our pleasure to learn about the important and inspiring work of local and regional charities at the voluntary community sector forum in Didcot. The event saw about 150 representatives from different charities attending workshops throughout the day. A big thanks goes to Astons Online and Brunskill Security Consulting (BCS) who invited us to tag along and to jointly talk about IT and Cyber Security matters.

    Project: data protection and management

    Sector: health - inclusion | Size: <25

    While generally being ready for GDPR, this charity undertook a larger revision of their data management processes. We consulted on data protection related aspects of database management, email encryption, and device (desktop and mobile) management. We are grateful to have had this opportunity.

    Session: Lunch & Learn

    The new General Data Protection Regulation is coming into effect.

    Five Oxfordshire based charities followed our invitation to discuss GDPR related issues. The event offered the opportunity to share GDPR related experiences and to discuss remaining concerns. The feedback on the event was very positive. As a result OxSecure will provide further advice to some of the attending charities, and we are looking forward to hosting similar events in the future.

    Project: weblearning and website

    Sector: health - weblearning | Size: <25

    Medical knowledge is in short supply in too many parts of the world. This not-for-profit connects doctors and students across the globe to lessen the imbalance. We have conducted a review of the charity’s weblearning tool, as well as website and suggested solutions to decrease downtime and technical difficulties to maximise the charity’s reach and impact.
