Cybersecurity for Nonprofits – Practical Solutions to Combat Cyber Threats
Nearly all U.S. nonprofits store and manage Personally Identifiable Information (PII), data, host e-commerce tools to collect donations, and collect private information on their donors and/or other constituents.
Meanwhile, cyber threats are rising in both frequency and sophistication, yet most nonprofits in the US are not prepared to meet this 21st-century challenge. According to the Financial Times: …in a 2016 survey by US accounting firm CohnReznick, almost half of the non-profit organizations polled said they had not completed a cyber-risk assessment in the past year and 66% had no plan to increase their spending on data security.
In addition, a 2018 report from the Ponemon Institute estimates an average of $148 per lost record, and $3.86 million average total cost of a breach.
Despite the significant financial risks, nonprofits still have not taken the time to invest and protect themselves.
Your data – and your reputation – are on the line. Protect yourself.
