It should be noted that whilst the respective governments are producing regular updates, these then require careful consideration and interpretation, to make the guidance relevant to our individual sector. The following updates are BRC’s current interpretation of the most recent government guidance and are subject to change, as and when government advice is updated.

Cyber Security
We have recently been made aware that an affiliated club has been targeted by what appears to be fraudsters who have managed to hack in to some of the Club officials email accounts. Click see the up to date datasheet on internet and email security for clubs and remain vigilant. 

Protecting Facebook Events

There have been a number of cases reported to us where Facebook Events have been targeted by phishing scams and spam posts. Unfortunately this seems to be on the rise because of the increase in digital events due to Covid. We have seen it at both regional and national level.

We understand that Facebook is obviously an extremely useful tool for delivering events, so we have put together a new BRC Datasheet which contains some actions that can be taken to help minimise the risk when running events this way.
