Nonprofits are not immune, and they face risks as well if they engage in activities, such as processing donations, event registrations, and store information digitally about their donors, members, clients, and employees. Nonprofit Boards need to be able to recognize the risks associated with operating in a digital environment and how to take steps to protect their organization’s data.
