  • 8 Ways to protect your nonprofit from targeted cyber-attacks

  

As the world becomes increasingly digitized, so do the risks associated with online business. Cyber-attacks are becoming more sophisticated and targeted, and nonprofits are especially vulnerable. Here are some tips on how to protect your nonprofit from cyber-attacks:

1. Educate yourself and your staff on cybersecurity risks. Awareness is key to prevention.

2. Keep your software and anti-virus programs up to date. Outdated software is one of the biggest vulnerabilities for any organization.

3. Create strong passwords and don’t reuse them. Passwords should be at least 8 characters long and include a mix of letters, numbers, and symbols.

4. Back up your data regularly. This way, if you are attacked, you can quickly restore your data from a backup.

5. Use secure communication methods. When sharing sensitive information, use encryption and other security measures to protect it.

6. Be careful about clicking on links and opening attachments. Malicious emails are often used to spread viruses and malware.

7. Monitor your credit card statements for suspicious activity. If you see something that doesn’t look right, report it to your credit card company immediately.

8. Have a plan in place for how to respond to a cyber-attack. This should include who to contact, what steps to take, and how to minimize the damage.

By following these tips, you can help protect your nonprofit from becoming the victim of a cyber-attack.
