Nonprofit Cybersecurity: Why Pay Attention?
When performing a risk assessment, many organizations focus on issues such as loss of funding and reputational damage. Yet nonprofit data breaches, which can cause just as much harm, largely get overlooked. Nonprofits collect sensitive data, which can include donor information, health information, Social Security numbers, confidential emails, employee and volunteer records, and billing information. But, very few organizations can be confident that they do not store any of this information, so it needs to be protected.
