Not-for-profits have been steadily the target of cyberattacks over the years because your organisation safekeeps sensitive data of your donors and volunteers. Sadly, because of constraints around time, budgets, and technical know-how, many not-for-profits are not fully equipped to protect its digital assets against advanced and persistent cyber threats. Some also commit these common cybersecurity mistakes:

  1. Using poor password hygiene.
  2. Not accurately managing user accounts.
  3. Not applying software patches and fixes immediately.
  4. Not providing enough cybersecurity education.

Not having a solid cybersecurity strategy and tools in place puts your not-for-profit at risk of a data breach, the possibility of losing donors and supporters, and having to pay for substantial amount of fines. Prevent this from happening by using the security solutions available in your Microsoft 365 subscription.
