THINK™ is an exciting industry led initiative that tackles the growing data security and compliance challenges facing organisations today.

The philosophy is that security is more effectively tackled by the people who know their industry best, and what works for one community is rarely the ideal solution for everyone else!

We believe in putting the needs of people at the centre of everything we do and that best practice IT security is almost always grounded in communication, and how people behave in relation to the information they gather, store and utilise in their personal and professional activities.

THINK™ events are therefore based on the three key pillars facing you and your stakeholders today:

  • THREATS: analysis of the key security issues facing your community and the practical steps you can take to counter them
  • HUMAN FACTORS: proven initiatives to encourage a security aware workforce, proactively engaged in reducing the risk of a breach happening in the first place
  • INFORMATION GOVERNANCE: advice and guidance on the latest legal, regulatory and compliance issues that is relevant to you today

However, THINK™ is more than just a meeting place. We also aim to foster ongoing partnerships and will always go the extra mile to ensure attendees can build valuable relationships relevant to their everyday needs.

THINK™ Charity is the annual conference presented by Charities Security Forum, taking place on the 6th March 2015 at etc. Venues, Marble Arch, London.

Chaired by Brian Shorten, formerly of Cancer Research UK and co-founded by Martyn Croft , CIO of the Salvation Army, the CSF is an association of IT and IT security professionals and volunteers, representing over 300 charities in the UK and beyond.

It is vital that charities are made more aware of the information security threats facing them today and how these can impact on the broader initiatives of the charity.

THINK™ Charity is dedicated to addressing the challenges facing the charity sector organisations, including:

  • The rise in online donations and subsequent rise in phishing and other fraudulent activities
  • IT risk and governance: particularly in a sector where there are many part time or volunteer members of staff
  • Ensuring trustees and other key charity stakeholders are aware of IT security challenges and their roles and responsibilities in respect of this
  • How to responsibly harvest, store, use and protect data gathered
  • Plus of course how to protect their organisation against a myriad of threats on a very small budget

The conference is split into three sections – THREATS, HUMAN FACTORS and INFORMATION GOVERNANCE

Speakers in each section present for 15 minutes in succession, before taking part in a Q&A panel with the audience.
