IT Security Best Practices


Data security that is too difficult to use is no data security at all. Poorly implemented disaster recovery plans give false security. Tangible losses due to data breaches and system failures can be dwarfed by damages to reputation, good will, and trust. Learn some clear and simple best practices to secure your nonprofit organization:

  • Understand the three components of data security.
  • Learn how to quantify your risk, and the immediate actions and plans that you can take to mitigate the risks.
  • Build Disaster Recovery and Business Resumption into your standard operating procedures.
  • Review Authentication and Identity Management to keep your data safe.

Learning Outcomes

  • Quantify what is at risk
  • Build a simple incident response plan for a data breach or IT incident
  • How to implement Authentication and Identity Management (AIM) for Nonprofits
