Do you have Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plans? In a cybersecurity risk webinar I presented a few weeks ago, only 25% of the Not for Profit participants said they had one. Unfortunately, in this cyber world, the lack of these plans could spell disaster for any organisation.
Is your Not for Profit practicing safe AI? In a recent webinar where I presented, 49% of the attendees said they knew their staff were using AI or Artificial Intelligence tools like ChatGPT. Yet, the same people also told me that only a fraction of their organisations have completed cybersecurity training in the last twelve months.
