Here are two common forms of attack that affect nonprofits and small businesses that don’t make the headlines:
- Business email compromise where an employee is tricked into sending funds to a cyber attacker posing as a legitimate business
- Website attacks that allow cybercriminals to route your donations to their own accounts
Prevention is the best safeguard against these very simple and common attacks. Be sure to enable multi factor authentication across your accounts, especially accounts such as your email accounts, website administrator accounts, any accounts with access to financial information and any accounts with access to sensitive information such as PII or PHI. Also, be sure to provide regular cybersecurity training to all of your staff so that they are aware of these types of threats.
