Nonprofit organizations hold a significant amount of sensitive information and thus are a perfect target for cyber criminals to attack. If your nonprofit accepts credit and debit cards for donations or sells products and/or services on your website, there's a risk associated with the theft of that information. At the same time, many nonprofits hold and transmit personally identifiable information (PII) on volunteers and individuals receiving services through the organization. Securing this information, depending on the type of information and the type of business the nonprofit engages in, can sometimes compromise the safety of individuals around the world.
Cybersecurity in the Nonprofit Industry
While the most common inquiry in this industry is, "How to start a non profit organization", the term leaders should be searching for is, "How to secure a non profit organization". In a recent study of nonprofit organizations, it was determined that a staggering 70% of the nonprofits polled have never run a vulnerability assessment. In addition, 69% of those organizations do not have an incident response plan in place, should a security incident occur. One security breach could be the difference between a nonprofit staying in business or having to shut down for good, putting the people and families that depend on their services in great danger.
