With the Nonprofit Cybersecurity Toolkit, executives and board members will gain the knowledge and hands-on guides necessary to plan and prepare for a cyber attack.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (PRWEB) December 04, 2018
Threat Sketch, a leading cybersecurity company, announces the launch of its new Nonprofit Cybersecurity Risk Assessment tool. This risk assessment completes the Nonprofit Cybersecurity Toolkit, which also includes a budget tool and a guide for organization leaders.
The Nonprofit Cybersecurity Risk Assessment uses cyber crime statistics and proprietary data to analyze risks specifically from the nonprofit viewpoint. The risk assessment is unique in the industry, providing more than a vulnerability assessment. Through identifying what is important to the organization’s mission and strategy, the risk assessment analyzes the information and will provide a report to help set priorities, prepare a budget and create an action plan that makes an organization better protected and more prepared for cyber attack.
“Every business is at risk of cyber attack, but we saw vulnerabilities in the nonprofit sector that weren’t taken into account in risk assessments designed for businesses,” says Rob Arnold, CEO of Threat Sketch. “In an area dependent on donors and community goodwill, it is especially important to show your organization is aware of the threats and willing to take the steps necessary to prepare for and prevent a cyber attack.”
The Nonprofit Risk Assessment and the other items in the Nonprofit Cybersecurity Toolkit provide a solution for leaders in the nonprofit sector who are being asked what they are doing to manage cyber risk. The Nonprofit Guide provides an overview of the cyber risk landscape as it pertains to nonprofits, then gives specific steps to help prevent and prepare for a cyber attack, including the role executives play in assembling a team, managing cyber risk and making organizations more resilient. The Nonprofit Budget Tool helps organizations allocate funds and balance prevention with preparedness. The Nonprofit Cybersecurity Toolkit was created with funding and support provided by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, National Protection and Programs Directorate, Office of Infrastructure Protection, through the National Infrastructure Protection Program Security & Resilience Challenge, which is implemented by the National Institute for Homeland Security (NIHS).
“Cybersecurity is an issue that affects every organization, no matter how large or how small,” Arnold says. “I can never emphasize enough that it is not just an IT problem, but it is an issue that executives and board members need to pay attention to as well.” With the Nonprofit Cybersecurity Toolkit, executives and board members will gain the knowledge and hands-on guides necessary to plan and prepare for a cyber attack.
