4 Key Areas of Intelligent Security

security & compliance for Nonprofits

How does your nonprofit combat security threats?

Determining the best approach to security gets more difficult as attacks grow more sophisticated.  To make matters worse, employees and volunteers use a wider array of devices and applications, and data flows into and out of your organization through more channels. It’s no wonder that many nonprofit leaders list security as one of the top challenge in their organizations. The following questions can help guide your organization’s decision makers to prioritize intelligent security:

  • Do you know who is accessing your data?
  • Can you manage access to your data and assets based on risk in real-time?
  • Can you quickly find and react to a breach?
  • Can you help protect your data on devices, in the cloud, and in transit?

The security functions you should be implementing

To help you answer the questions above, we recommend looking into the following security areas:

  1. Identity & Access Management: Secure the front door. Protect users’ identities and control access to valuable resources with conditional access based on user risk level.
  2. Information Protection: Secure content.  Protect information in documents and emails with encryption that travels with them as they move inside and outside your organization
  3. Threat Protection: Secure environments. Strengthen your pre-breach posture with built-in threat protection, and recover quickly with automated remediation when attacked.
  4. Security Management: Secure devices. Use security management tools to gain end-to-end visibility of your organization and manage policy centrally
