Cyber Security for Non Profits
Technology is fast becoming a "service", vs. hardware and onsite tech support. It's crucial for non-profits to develop an IT strategy and budget for the future that recognizes this change.
Here, we list 4 examples of these new technologies as practical examples for any non-profit to consider in their efforts to secure their information and protect the privacy of its constituencies.
1) Protect the Devices
Smartphones, pads, tablets, laptops and computers all need protection. Antivirus, data loss protection, intruder protection, and application controls are just examples of the defenses needed for any device that connects to a network. Fortunately, protecting devices has been made easy and requires no user input as a result of "real-time" monitoring services that do all the work and proactively defend your organization from the threat landscape as it evolves.
2) Encrypt Internet Communications
Browsing, banking, and all online activity should be encrypted by VPN technology. Virtual Private Networks were once expensive, hardware-intensive systems that only the largest of enterprises could once afford. Now, commercial-quality systems are available to anyone for extremely inexpensive rates.
3) Store and Share Sensitive Data
Now, you can use cloud-like technology for data management without incurring the actual risks of cloud-based data storage systems. Data stored on remote, secure servers can be stored, shared, and edited with end-to-end encryption, and without the need for encryption keys and other complicated systems.
4) Network Security
A surprisingly low annual service fee can protect every device and every connection using remote operations and services that act as your IT security center in the Cloud. Your connected devices, faxes, VoIP, and credit card transactions all are protected and secured using the latest threat management intelligence and defenses.
