In the not-for-profit sector, where resources are often stretched thin, the importance of cybersecurity cannot be overstated. Newlife, the UK's largest children's disability equipment charity, recognised this imperative as it sought to fortify its digital defences. With a noble mission to support disabled children, Newlife's challenge was to ensure the highest standards of data governance and protect its employees from a myriad of cyber threats, including those originating from web, email, and cloud-based sources.

Understanding the sensitivity and importance of the data they handle, Newlife required a comprehensive and robust security solution. The charity operates across multiple sites, each necessitating stringent security measures to safeguard against potential breaches that could compromise not only their operations but also the trust of those they serve.

Censornet's multifaceted solution for Newlife included Email Security, Email Archive, Sandboxing, Web Security, Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). This suite of tools provided a layered security approach, essential for addressing the diverse range of threats faced by the charity. Email Security and Email Archive were crucial in protecting against and managing email-based threats and ensuring compliance with data retention policies. Sandboxing offered an additional layer of protection by isolating and analysing suspicious files and links. Web Security safeguarded against online threats, while CASB ensured secure and compliant use of cloud applications. MFA added an extra layer of verification, fortifying access controls.

The implementation of these solutions resulted in a dramatic reduction of cyber threats to zero, a testament to Censornet's effectiveness in addressing Newlife's specific security needs.

This case study demonstrates the critical role of advanced cybersecurity measures in protecting not-for-profit organizations, particularly those handling sensitive information and supporting vulnerable communities.
