Why the Charity Commission is Going Digital
The Charity Commission blogs about how they plan to use online services to communicate directly with trustees over the next few years.
“The internet has changed the way we interact and is a core part of everyday life for most of us”, Paula Sussex, Chief Executive at the Charity Commission, says.
Paula Sussex writes: “The commission is already putting more of our services online in a way that is better focussed on the customer, like our new registration service. Eventually each charity will have its own self-service portal where it can update its own information. We also hope to communicate better online using different tools such as live-streaming, video and webinars.”

Quarter of Data Breaches Caused by Leaked Credentials
Compromised credentials are still the cause of almost a quarter of all data breaches, according to a new Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) survey titled, Identity Solutions: Security Beyond the Perimeter.
In February 2016, the CSA released a report titled The Treacherous Twelve: Cloud Computing Top Threats in 2016, which revealed top concerns of IT security professionals in cloud computing. Data breaches, account hijacking and malicious insiders all rated as top threats. These attacks often occur because of a lack of scalable identity access management systems, failure to use multifactor authentication, insufficient password use and a lack of ongoing automated rotation of cryptographic keys, passwords and certificates.
