The IT sector is still struggling with an effective measure for productivity. Companies need to re-examine the true nature of development and what are the ultimate goals. Learn what should now be included in the modern definition of productivity.
Research by the Nonprofit Technology Enterprise Network (NTEN) states that only 25% of nonprofit organizations actively monitor their network for security events, and only 7% have undergone a cyberattack simulation activity. The low investment in security can be attributed to the small size of most nonprofits and their data sets, which makes them believe they have a lower risk of cyberattacks compared to large profit organizations. In reality, nonprofit organizations are low-hanging fruit for hackers due to the gap between the security risk and the actions needed to address the risks. That is what makes nonprofits ideal targets, and why they should take steps to protect themselves.
