This resource was published so that charitable organizations can better protect themselves against hackers. To prepare the report, Fundmetric interviewed Kathryn Cameron, COO of Beauceron Security.
The company notes that the number of cyberattacks has increased during the pandemic, as many nonprofits intensified their fundraising campaigns. As these organizations collect money from donors, they have become prime targets for hackers who wish to siphon away both funds and personal data.
Fundmetric notes that a cybersecurity breach can prove catastrophic to a charity’s reputation and may expose it to legal liabilities. Its new report hopes to share key insights that can help nonprofits prevent data hacks from happening in the first place.
A key theme of the report is the importance of getting leadership buy-in on cybersecurity. As Cameron notes, IT departments model their actions on the management team’s; the more seriously leaders take the threat of data breaches, the more vigilant IT personnel will be, too.
Aside from having the right mindset, it is also vital for charities to invest in their cybersecurity infrastructure. This may include buying the appropriate software or hiring an expert who can be the point person for this matter.
Cameron also stresses that nonprofits must update their cybersecurity policies annually, especially given how quickly threats evolve. By continuously reassessing their framework, organizations will never be caught off guard by hackers.
