How to protect your nonprofit from cybercrime
Abstract: Any nonprofit that has a computer network or collects financial or personal information — in other words, most nonprofits — risks data theft. So it’s critical to have effective cybersecurity policies and sophisticated protections in place. This article explains why nonprofits are particularly vulnerable to data theft and how they can fight back by following data handling rules, educating staffers about common cybercrime schemes and establishing a board technology committee. A sidebar discusses cyber liability insurance.
