WHY ARE SPORTS CLUBS A TARGET FOR HACKERS?

Sport and leisure clubs of all sizes are finding themselves under attack from cyber criminals. These attacks can result in large financial penalties, loss of member trust and loss of sponsorship.

On average, the cost of a successful cyber attack to a sports club in the UK is £10,000. For many amateur community clubs this would be a crippling financial hit.


But why are hackers choosing the sport and leisure market? This article from our partners at DeCyber lists the reasons why and highlights the importance of making your data secure.

AN EYE ON GOVERNANCE 

Over 40 people from a variety of sport and recreation clubs and organisations attended our 'Governance workshop for grassroots' last month.

The workshop was held for clubs, volunteers and organisers of sports activities who were looking to review and revise their current organisational structure or required help in establishing good governance practices.


Experts from Birkbeck, University of London and the Alliance helped the delegates understand the importance of governance and how they can improve the governance structures and behaviours of their organisation.

The key lessons from the workshop will help guide the future support we offer the volunteers who power the grassroots sport and recreation sector.
