Thank you to Idealware.org for this guide to managing risk for nonprofits:
Big, sophisticated hacking incidents get the headlines, but most attacks are small and not all that intricate—and most could have been prevented. Hackers prefer easy targets. Perfect security isn’t possible, but practical security is within your reach.
Is your organization doing enough to secure its most important data? In our new report, we cut through the fear and uncertainty to provide clear guidance. We’ll show you how to assess your risk, explain the basic protections, and discuss building a culture that values security. We’ll show you how to develop policies to guide staff and present case studies of how two nonprofits chose to deal with their particular security issues. We’ll also provide a one-page security checklist that you can print and distribute to your entire staff.
