In today’s digital age, nonprofit organizations face growing threats when it comes to cybersecurity. The confidential nature of donor information and the critical role of data integrity in serving the community necessitate a strong focus on safeguarding nonprofit systems and information. Cybersecurity plays a crucial role in protecting donor privacy, ensuring the integrity of organizational records, and maintaining the trust of stakeholders. As nonprofits increasingly rely on digital platforms for fundraising, communication, and program management, implementing robust cybersecurity measures is essential for maintaining the security and trustworthiness of nonprofit operations.
A study by IBM reported that the average cost of a data breach for a nonprofit organization in 2020 was approximately $4.72 million. The financial burden, coupled with reputational damage, can significantly impact a nonprofit’s ability to carry out its mission effectively.
