As the saying goes “Data Is the New Oil” and charities and non-profits certainly hold a lot of valuable data. We collect contact details, build up donor giving histories, process payments, build up donor and prospect profiles and gain insights into very personal and sensitive information. And we do this for a vast number of individuals, but often these individuals are also celebrities, politicians, people in the media, the very wealthy and quite often the very vulnerable.
This volume and level of information can make our data very attractive… and we are not immune to cyber-attacks. In this blog, I provide some background information and tips on how you can reduce your risks.
