Charity Digital Explain the Ethics Behind Safeguarding Technology

07-Sep-2020

Charity Digital recently reported that charities should consider safeguarding aspects when making use of new technology.

Looking after the people and keeping them safe – these endeavours are often front and centre in whatever the voluntary sector does. In fact, the VCS probably surpasses every other sector in this; ensuring they put the people at the heart of their service, doing their best to put the needs of the people they help at the forefront.

But in this ever-changing environment, where charities have to adapt the delivery of their services we need to remember that the same principles apply, now more than ever.

Most of us, if not all of us, are ‘Zoom’ing in to each other’s front rooms, spare rooms, broom cupboards, even Wendy houses and garden sheds. Now there are people amongst us who are ‘WhatsApp’ing, ‘FaceBook’ing, texting and house partying.

Socialising is one thing – but how can it be possible for charities keep people safe and manage key aspects of privacy when they are moving some of their services online?

Charity Digital looks to answer this. The online newscaster has recently released an article that explores some of the practical ways to safeguard tech for good and how charities are doing this in practice.
