As nonprofit professionals, we hear about cyberattacks and understand the importance of protecting our organizations and our clients. But what are we doing to prepare, and what is stopping us from a higher level of protection?

We wanted to find out, so together with Microsoft, we polled more than 250 community members about their cybersecurity practices. The result is the State of Nonprofit Cybersecurity report.

Report front cover: NTEN State of Nonprofit Cybersecurity

In this inaugural report, we examine the steps nonprofits are taking to develop secure practices around technology use in their nonprofits, and identify some areas where the sector can improve. But it isn’t just academic! We wanted to give you insights that you and your organization’s leadership can immediately use to better secure your systems and protect your data.

Some of the points covered are:

  • the policies and procedures your nonprofit has for who and how people can access your systems,
  • to what extent nonprofits are using technology to protect their systems,
  • what kind of training is offered to nonprofit staff, and
  • how nonprofit operations contribute to cybersecurity vulnerabilities.

Lyndal Frazier-Cairns is committed to building stronger nonprofits as though our very existence depends on them. Because it does. After a decade as a newspaper and online journalist, she devoted her career to marketing for social good organizations working for sustainability, public health, education and technology. Among her proudest moments was receiving the 2015 NTEN Award for services to the nonprofit tech sector; and watching billboard ads for the Queensland AIDS Council being reinstated after a million-strong social media campaign against the homophobic decision to remove them. She and her team are currently working on a membership growth strategy for NTEN, as well as rebranding efforts. When not working, Lyndal can usually be found making mixtapes or digging in her garden.
