Too many businesses do not take cyber security and safety seriously enough. This is no different when it comes to charities. A study has shown that 60% of non profits don’t have a policy when it comes to cybersecurity. This is 60% too many.

It is important to have security in place to help protect your organisation against potential threats and leaks. This becomes even more important when it comes to an organisation that deals with a lot of sensitive data.

Here are 4 amazing and simple ways you can immediately level up your safety.


  1. MFA

Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) should be enabled on all of your devices. This basically adds a couple of extra barriers to your security. Imagine a safe with a code behind a brick wall and a locked door. That is what MFA does for you, it puts your data behind added layers of security. This could be like sending a code to your phone or having to confirm it is you with biometrics.


  1. Location

Storing files in just one place can save you a lot of hassle. It can also help your security. Focusing your security in just one location means it will keep your data extremely protected. You can use protection methods such as encryption and access control. Furthermore, having all of your files stored in one place makes it more manageable to track and address any potential threats to your data.


  1. Conditional Access

Conditional Access is a security protocol that you can put in place so that only folders can be opened under certain conditions. This can be location, time, or even specific devices. This can ensure that your staff are the only people that can access data, in the office on their corporate devices. This means that if someone tries to access from their home or on a personal device, they will be unable to. This is perfect for security!


  1. Backup

Backing up involves creating a copy of your current data so that you can call upon it should something happen to the original files.
