We’ve recently added a new notification which appears as a pink box at the bottom of your screen when a record is being saved. This is a small enhancement designed to show you what’s going on—and it’s more informative than the whirring wheel! It will tell you when your record is saving, and once saving is complete you may also see a confirmation of the new ID number.
The Charity Commission and Fraud Advisory Panel have come together to offer advice on common ways charities could be affected by fraud during Covid-19. They’ve produced a free webinar on what to watch out for and how to stay safe. It covers common email frauds, risks associated with staff and volunteers, basic financial controls, and how to report fraud.
If you’re thinking about security, don’t forget to sign up to our Zoom web chat next Wednesday, 20th May, at 10 a.m. We’ll be looking at some Lamplight system admin decisions, like adding new database operators and system admins, locking accounts, two factor authentication, log in policies to restrict access to certain times or IP addresses, time outs and more.
Just drop us a line if you’re interested, and we’ll send you the details.
In the past few weeks many people have started to work from home for the first time. Chances are you’ve been getting systems up and running from new locations, working out the best way to do things that seemed simple in the office. You might have staff accessing Lamplight from many different places, which could have implications for your data.
On the 20th May at 10 a.m. we’re having a video chat about what you can do to help keep your system secure even when you have remote workers. This will be a Zoom chat for up to 45 minutes, where we’ll cover things like lockouts, two factor authentication, adding new database operators, log in policies, time outs and more.
If you’d like to join in, send us an email and we’ll let you know the meeting details nearer the time. If there’s something on this topic that we’re not covering but that you would like to know more about, please tell us that too and we’ll do our best to include it.
