Cybersecurity Awareness Month is nearly over, but it’s so important to practice good online security throughout the year. This is especially true for nonprofit organizations, many of which are serving the most vulnerable members of our society who cannot afford disruptions in those services.
Rather than re-invent the wheel by writing a post full of tips, I’ve compiled a list of good resources for nonprofits to learn more about what to about cybersecurity:

- Cybersecurity – National Council on Nonprofits
- 10 Steps Nonprofits Should Take to Increase Cybersecurity – BDO
- Top Ten Cybersecurity Tips for Nonprofits: Managing Your Technical and Legal Risks [MS Word] – Venable
Please don’t wait to address your organization’s cybersecurity! Sad as it is, hackers don’t care that you are a nonprofit doing good work in the world or that you are a small organization – everyone is a potential target.
