IT Solutions for Nonprofits

Technology is at the heart of all  success in the modern world. Nonprofits are no exception, and being at the cutting edge of technology and IT is vital for not-for-profit organizations looking to deliver effective services and boost fundraising efforts.

Nonprofit based

Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is vital for nonprofits and is likely to be one of the most important aspects of technology innovation today. Nonprofits hold significant amounts of sensitive information and confidential data, and protecting payment details and privileged info is crucial.

IT Tips to Keep a Eye On

The cybersecurity landscape is ever changing. Cybercriminals are always changing and innovating, employing ever more sophisticated and subtle methods. Thus, there will be huge changes in the way organizations will need to operate to secure their future.

Remote Workers

Remote workers will likely be a focus for bad actors throughout the year, as organizations continue to adapt and develop new working practices. Flexible and remote working without sufficient organizational support and infrastructure can expose huge vulnerabilities in any network, and it is worth keeping a close eye on this.

Legacy Security Architecture

Due to budgetary restrictions, nonprofits often continue to operate with outdated or legacy security architecture. VPNs, for example, are often seen as a silver bullet for remote work, but they come with serious liabilities, vulnerability to ransomware, and can introduce latency as time goes by. Zero-trust network access is likely to become far more frequently used, with Gartner estimating that over 60% of enterprises will phase out VPNs in favor of zero-trust networks by 2023.

AI in Cybersecurity

AI in cybersecurity will be a huge part of the response for nonprofits. AI cybersecurity measures allow potential threats to be dealt with before they occur, rather than just fighting them when they appear.

AI allows vulnerabilities to be dealt with before they become problems, and can work faster and harder than would be possible using traditional cybersecurity methods. This also has the knock-on benefit of freeing up resources elsewhere.

Managed IT Services

Finding ways to improve technology and IT services within nonprofit organizations is an important aspect for growth.

Unsurprisingly, most nonprofits don’t have the in-house capacity or resources to outfit a massive IT department event at the best of times. But this doesn’t mean they have to deal with a lack of support. In order to breach the transformation gap, convergence and simplicity is the way forward, and CSOs/CIOs will likely turn to alternatives that integrate multiple services and result in larger cost and efficiency savings.

Managed services are an increasingly vital part of smaller organizations’ IT toolkit. Managed services essentially run your IT infrastructure remotely, providing the right systems to improve productivity, protecting your organization with cyber security, and looking for ways to accelerate your organization’s processes and help things run smoothly. Having smooth IT processes is vital for nonprofits looking to maximize online and digital donations.

Managing donation processes, and optimizing websites and apps to encourage giving is a big part of IT for nonprofits, and one of the main ways an experienced managed service provider can have a tangible impact on a philanthropic organization.

Managed services allow nonprofits to control their costs, providing clear, up-front fees for access to a full department’s worth of IT experts at a fraction of the cost of an in-house alternative. They can also provide the expertise in areas that NPOs lack, and deliver important strategic planning support and advice.
