The Importance of Cybersecurity in Uncertain Times: A Message from RoundTable Technology

The Importance of Cybersecurity in Uncertain Times: A Message from RoundTable Technology

In light of recent global events, RoundTable Technology would like to stress the critical importance of maintaining a strong cybersecurity posture. As the world changes around us, the digital realm often reflects these shifts, with various actors exploiting uncertainties for nefarious purposes.

For our valued nonprofit clients, the cyber landscape can present unique challenges. Nonprofits often store sensitive information like donor data, financial records, and personal details of beneficiaries. During times of geopolitical uncertainty, they may become targets for a variety of reasons:

  1. Information Theft: Nonprofits handle a wealth of data that, if accessed unlawfully, could be misused or sold.

  2. Resource Diversion: Cyber-attacks could redirect funds meant for humanitarian or philanthropic efforts elsewhere, undermining the mission of the organization.

  3. Reputation Damage: A successful breach or cyber-attack can significantly damage the trust and reputation nonprofits have built over the years.

  4. Service Disruption: Especially for nonprofits that provide essential services, a cyber-attack could halt operations, affecting those who rely on them.

To combat these potential risks and ensure the cybersecurity of your nonprofit, here are steps you can consider:

  1. Regular Backups: Make sure all essential data is backed up regularly and stored securely. This ensures that, in the event of a cyber-attack, you can restore your systems without major losses.

  2. Employee Training: Educate your staff on the basics of cybersecurity, like recognizing phishing emails and using strong, unique passwords.

  3. Multi-factor Authentication (MFA): Enable MFA for all essential accounts. This adds an extra layer of security, making it more difficult for unauthorized individuals to gain access.

  4. Regular Software Updates: Ensure all software, including your operating system and third-party applications, are up-to-date. This minimizes vulnerabilities that attackers might exploit.

  5. Incident Response Plan: Have a plan in place detailing steps to take if a breach occurs. This ensures a swift, organized response, minimizing potential damage.
