Join us on Tuesday, March 15 for our monthly chapter meeting with a special guest speaker:


The 2022 Annual Non-Profit Security Incident Report
by Matthew Eshleman, Chief Technology Officer at Community IT

Most small-to-medium sized nonprofit organizations do not prioritize cybersecurity, despite the risks faced by many of these organizations. The threat landscape continues to evolve and grow and most organizations are at greater risk than they realize. This report shares some of our experiences and insights from the front lines. We establish a solid business case for making nonprofit cybersecurity an organizational priority. In our unique role as a managed services provider to over 140 organizations representing 6500 devices, we have the unique insights into how nonprofits are targeted and how they can defend themselves.

You’ll be treated to an early preview of Community IT Innovators 4th Annual Nonprofit Cybersecurity Incident Report, which will be released formally in April. Our goal is to help nonprofits establish a credible business case for taking cybersecurity seriously and to provide specific and meaningful recommendations for threat mitigation and incident response, in language accessible to any nonprofit executive, decision-maker, or IT staff person.
