Pandemic leaves non-profits more vulnerable than ever.
Commonwealth Sentinel Cyber Security announced today it is accepting applications from Kentucky non-profits to apply for free cyber security consulting. “With big business investing billions of dollars building in cyber defenses, bad actors are going after smaller, easier targets like local governments, non-profits, and small businesses,” says Sheri Donahue, co-founder, and CEO of the company.
The FBI predicts damage from cyber attacks will top $6 billion in 2021. These attacks cost time, money, and damage to an organization’s reputation. Applications will be accepted until April 16.
Since its launch, Commonwealth Sentinel Cyber Security has been committed to vulnerability and threat evaluation, transformation management, CISO management services, and incident response management. Not a week goes by without a news story about new ransomware attacks against small businesses, local governments, and even charities.
Donahue asserts, “COVID isn’t our only threat. Cyber criminals can attack anybody, any time from anywhere.”
In 2020, non-profit contributions were down, and staff worked from home. Remote work has opened organizations to more significant cyber risks. Commonwealth Sentinel will select at least three non-profits to provide Vulnerability and Threat Evaluations, a detailed plan of action needed to improve the organizations’ cyber health, staff training, and one year of Dark Web and network monitoring.
