Posted by Blue Technologies Ohio on Mar 16, 2020 9:59:00 AM

It may not seem self-evident, but museums also need cybersecurity just like any other public or private entity. Depending on the types of relics, treasures, and art displayed at the facility, it may require more protection than regular businesses. As these institutions usually rely on grants, donations, and other contributions, they also face budgetary pressures while needing to improve their information security on their networks and devices.

They sell tickets to the public, host events, manage member’s information, and keep financial records regarding donations and contributions. All of this information can be valuable in a bad actor or hacker’s hands. Therefore, taking a proactive approach to information security will be vital to running a sustainable (and socially essential) operation.
