Charity & Not-for-Profit

Succeed In Your Mission By Improving Your IT Strategy

IT Expertise for a Good Cause

In 2019, the average annual cost of a data breach against charities was £9,470. That's twice the amount of the average cost for businesses!

Unfortunately, because of their benevolent aims, not-for-profit organisations are seen as an easy target for cyber crime. Investment into cyber security solutions and modernising IT infrastructures is often a lower priority than spending on staff or programme beneficiaries, and many organisations are unsure where to begin with IT security and modernisation.

When SysGroup technicians come alongside charities, we become an integral part of the team and offer 24/7/365 IT support they can rely on.

Benefits for Risk, Costs and Compliance

  • Protect sensitive donor data and payment information with secure firewalls and PCI DSS Level 1 hosting, essential for payment processing. 
  • Stay in control of your IT spending and prepare for seasonal traffic spikes with cloud hosting, where you can grow with demand or scale back when fewer compute resources  are required. 
  • 68% of UK charities have not completed a cyber-risk assessment to evaluate their preparedness for a cyber-attack. Our consultative approach can highlight the key areas where you can strengthen your defences. 
  • Enjoy a highly-available and stable IT environment, built on enterprise-grade hardware, for a fraction of the cost to buy it yourself.
