How are you preparing for a cyberattack?

Take the State of Nonprofit Cybersecurity Survey

We’re mapping the nonprofit cybersecurity landscape—and we need your help.

NTEN, in partnership with Microsoft and the Internet Society, has produced the first State of Nonprofit Cybersecurity Survey, which asks nonprofits what steps they’re taking to protect their organizations and clients.

Your answers to these questions will help us understand:

  • 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 the way nonprofits operate contributes to cybersecurity vulnerabilities.

Your contributions will be anonymized and used in aggregate to produce this landmark report, to be released this fall. Organizations like NTEN will use this data to inform their training and support programs, so we can help the sector better protect its systems and the data our clients have entrusted us with.

And you don’t have to be technology staff to take the survey! If your organization doesn’t have an IT team, we still want to hear from you.

The survey will take about 20 minutes to complete, and participants can elect to enter to win a registration to the Nonprofit Technology Conference or an NTEN course of their choice.

Take the survey today.
