Cybersecurity for Nonprofits

All organizations should take cybersecurity seriously, whether profit-driven enterprises or nonprofits. Today’s cybercriminals are using increasingly sophisticated attacks to take over devices and gain access to data, and nonprofit organizations often lack the resources to secure their systems effectively.

The Importance of Cybersecurity for Nonprofit Organizations

Nonprofits handle a lot of sensitive data, from the email addresses and contact details of donors to the private information of their beneficiaries. Like other businesses, nonprofits must abide by regulations and best practices such as GDPR, HIPAA, and PCI-DSS to protect everything from unauthorized access, from contact details to payment card information.

Cybersecurity and Fund-Raising

Fund-raising activities are one area where cybersecurity is critical. Taking precautions such as choosing secure password policies, adding multifactor authentication, and limiting access to fund-raising systems to those who need it for their work can go a long way toward reducing the risk of a security breach.

Data breaches can damage any organization’s reputation. CMIT Solutions can help you protect your nonprofit’s data and funds from cyber threats.

How to Assess Your Organization’s Need for Data Security

If your nonprofit stores and processes data digitally, it faces at least some cybersecurity risk. To consider the level of risk your organization faces, answer the following questions:

  • Do you sell products and services or accept donations online?
  • Do you process personally identifiable information about beneficiaries, volunteers, employees, or donors?
  • Do you have a loyalty program or a mailing list that collects information about those enrolled in it?

If you answered yes to any of the above, your organization collects data that must be protected from cyber threats.
