Your information systems are critical to the life and success of your organization, and business continuity means planning for situations in which these systems and their data may not otherwise be accessible for some period of time.
Anything from natural disasters to human error to a security breach can impact your organization’s ability to function, but you can plan for methods to continue to access and process critical information even in these situations.
It is a challenge for a nonprofit organization to develop an appropriate security plan that recognizes the difficulty in managing the security of your data assets, engages your staff with sensible practices as an important line of defense, and keeps costs effective.
Community IT Innovators’ practice is to create a multi-layered, monitored, and constantly updated approach to security and business continuity. We help our clients establish a good foundation of updated systems, regular backups, good user training including passwords, and effective written security policies that can evolve with you.
Community IT helps our nonprofit clients select and implement disaster recovery, business continuity, and security solutions that fit your budget and needs and give you peace of mind.
Questions about IT security, disaster recovery and business continuity planning?
Check out the Security Playbook, a downloadable resource produced in April 2016 that takes you through our approach to a multi-leveled security and provides a checklist of questions to ask your IT providers, whether in-house or out sourced.
Community IT has also explored security in our downloadable report produced in November 2015 with Idealware “What Nonprofits Need to Know About Security“, and in a January 2016 webinar IT Security Threats to Nonprofits, among many other webinar resources which can be found in our past webinar catalog.
We cover disaster recovery in a February 2016 webinar Backups and Disaster Recovery for Nonprofits.
We also offer additional online resources listed under Security.
