Wednesday 22 Sept 6.30-7.30pm – Cyber Security: helping you stay safe online
Led by Air IT’s Chief Technology and Information Security Officer, Lee Johnson, Air IT will share a unique insight into the most common types of threats facing the sports industry today, along with the practical steps you can take protect yourself against attack, both personally and professionally.
Cyber security is a growing threat to the UK economy and sports organisations are not immune, regardless of maturity or size. According to a report by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), over 70% of sporting organisations in the UK experience at least one attack per year – significantly higher than the national average. As well as the collection of highly sensitive personal data, the billions of pounds invested in sports makes the sector an attractive target to cyber criminals.
Join England Athletics for an exclusive webinar as we team up with the UK’s number one IT and Cyber Security Service Provider, Air IT. As well as being longstanding partners to England Athletics, Air IT has an enviable track record supporting national sport and membership organisations including England Hockey, Volleyball England, Archery GB and the Sport and Recreation Alliance to name a few.

LGBT+ inclusion workshops
The Athletics Pride Network (APN) is an initiative to make our sport safe and welcoming for people within the sport who identify as lesbian, gay, bi, trans and other sexual orientations and gender identities (LGBTQ+), and their allies, and it represents athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers and administrators.
Following a series of workshops delivered to the sport at the end of 2020, the APN, UK Athletics and England Athletics have worked with Diversity Role Models to deliver a unique workshop to the athletics community. These will initially be for adults; club stakeholders, parents/carers and coaches/officials. The workshops have been postponed but details will be updated when available. Further workshops for young people in the sport will be organised later in the year.
