Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative launches cybersecurity tools for resource-constrained nonprofits

Shared from the National Council of Nonprofits:

Cybersecurity is mission-critical for nonprofits. Cyber incidents can lead to exposure of sensitive information about a nonprofit’s employees and the people the nonprofit serves. They can also cripple an organization’s ability to carry out its core mission. With limited resources, many nonprofits are unable to hire information security professionals or implement costly enterprise-level cybersecurity solutions. To aid with those issues, the federal Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, through the Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative (JCDC), just released a series of materials that can help nonprofits with limited resources bolster their cybersecurity. These resources include:

  • Project Upskill: A series of guides designed to empower non-technical staff with the knowledge and ability to protect themselves – and by extension, their organization – from cyber threats.
  • Cybersecurity Resources for High-Risk Communities: A collection of tools and resources offered by JCDC and its partners to support cybersecurity for nonprofits.
  • Cyber Volunteer Resource Center: A database of cyber volunteer programs that provides information on how qualifying organizations can seek cybersecurity assistance from their local cyber volunteer program.
