Transforming IT Governance and Cybersecurity in the Not-For-Profit Sector

For the not-for-profit sector, making a secure digital transition is especially challenging. Not only do not-for-profit organisations and charities rely on funding, but they also manage a lot administration and governance when tracking and engaging a large number of donors.

 

A government survey reveals that over a quarter (26%) of charities have experienced a cyber breach in the last 6 months. With the rise in remote working, this figure is unsurprising.

 

Not-for-Profit organisations are now reconsidering their IT governance to deliver digital projects more efficiently and resolve cybersecurity issues. If this is a concern, here’s how we can help:

 

Remote endpoint management

Securing endpoints is critical for effective hybrid working. Where employees are working remotely via unsecured personal devices, data is at risk. This is a huge compliance issue, as confidential information can be more easily accessed by malicious outsiders. Ultimately, this could land not for profit organisations with a costly GDPR violation penalty – or worse yet, a six-figure ransom payment to hackers for the safe return of encrypted data.

 

Transparity recently worked with Enham Trust, a disability charity based in Hampshire, to improve data handling and information sharing across the organisation. As well as migrating to Microsoft 365 to achieve greater productivity in the Cloud, the charity gained access to Endpoint Manager, giving them the power to manage and authorise remote devices with zero-touch provisioning. This reduces the likelihood of cyberattacks, as Multi-Factor Authentication is required on mobile devices to prove a user’s identity before they can access files and applications. These solutions create a more secure, modern and flexible working environment, increasing efficiency and eliminating reliance on legacy infrastructure.
