What Your Nonprofit Needs to Know About Cybersecurity

Posted by Blue Technologies Ohio on Jun 1, 2022 9:00:00 AM

As we continue to move through the worldwide disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic, we are seeing a huge uptick in the number of cyberattacks focused on small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). What is even more ominous is that many of these organizations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) or nonprofits that provide much-needed services to underserved populations. The reason more nonprofits are finding themselves in the crosshairs of hackers is that they have the perfect combination of attractive features: they are typically easy to breach because they do not have the resources to stay on the cutting edge of cybersecurity protocols and they handle a lot of sensitive and confidential information.

Safeguarding Museums against Cyberattacks

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.

While the insides of museums may seem like ancient, dusty halls filled with knowledge, plenty is going on in the background. Museums collect information just like any other business. 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.
