Nonprofit Cyber Protection Challenges & Needs
From community service and religious organizations to public libraries, museums, and food banks, nonprofits hold an important place in American society – and play a meaningful, often vital, role in the everyday lives of its people. Though the size, makeup, and missions of organizations within the nonprofit community vary widely, all must contend with the challenges and risks associated with today’s digital landscape.
As more records and operations move virtual (and more employees and volunteers work-from-home during the COVID-19 pandemic), nonprofits must balance accessibility with the need to safeguard against cyberattacks, data breaches, hardware failures, and human errors – all of which can cause devastating downtime, high recovery costs, and a loss in public trust. Despite this complex cyber landscape, many nonprofits must make due with limited IT resources and personnel, leaving gaps in cybersecurity policies and staff training. Adding to these challenges, more than 17% of nonprofits have no tool to help manage their sensitive information, according to a joint report from Microsoft and the Nonprofit Technology Enterprise Network.
With so many counting on the services and resources nonprofits provide, the community needs cyber protection tools it can trust to keep critical systems and sensitive information safe without sacrificing productivity. Acronis SCS is here to help.
