Risk and compliance: Information and Cyber Security

User engagement

"Safeguard your organisation from cyber threats with robust security measures, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your critical information assets."

Threats to the security of sensitive data, financial resources and day to day operations are no longer only the concern of big business and government departments.

All organisations now face existential risks from hacking, phishing and ransomware. The non-profit sector is as much a target as any other but many managers and staff are still unaware of the seriousness of the problem, never mind the steps needed to protect what are arguably the organisation’s most precious – and vulnerable – resources.

We take a structured approach to risk evaluation and mitigation: carrying out a thorough information security review to identify how well your software, business processes and staff awareness comply with best practice in information security management.

Following discussion of our findings, we can help implement the changes to address any shortcomings. Our support in this stage can be purely advisory – or we can help draft documents, deliver training or, where required, manage a complete change programme for you.

Why Adapta

Adapta’s team of consultants has been working in the non-profit sector for many years, helping charities and others put the right protection measures in place. Our consultants are familiar with the cross-section of disciplines involved in risk management – we include specialists in data protection but also in broader information security management. Our team approach ensures that you benefit from a wealth of knowledge and experience and you can be confident that the key risk areas in your organisation will be identified and addressed.


We have helped many charities, membership organisations and other non-profit organisations with their Information and Cyber Security projects. Below are examples of just a few of the organisations we have worked with.

What our clients say

"Unlike many consultants, Adapta won’t tell you what you expect to hear. They will be very honest and challenging and, even if some of what they say is uncomfortable to hear, it means you end up getting better advice."

Chief Executive, Pilgrims' Friend Society

“Adapta were pivotal to the successful implementation of some mission critical change projects. They brought us expertise that we lacked and supported us through all phases including specification; design; tendering and implementation - and they were nice people to deal with – respectful of our values and way of working.”

“To achieve the level of change we saw in 6 months without the support of Adapta would have been impossible. Shortly after completing the project the pandemic hit. Without the work completed by Adapta, our organisation would not have been able to weather the pandemic and keep working.”
