This Safer Internet Guide is designed for nonprofits, charities, and NGOs.

You rely on the goodwill of your donors, constituents, and community for support. So it's very important that you protect your data and infrastructure. This guide is intended to help you keep it safe.

Our 12 tips include four main areas:

  • At your office: There are some basic things that you and your staff should think about when you work in your office. Learn them before it's too late.
  • Away from your office: Most employees use multiple devices (such as laptops, mobile phones, and tablets) and use them in public areas. Consider these useful tips when you're away from your office.
  • Use social media safely: Social media sites are the most visited ones online. Be aware of some do's and don'ts when you use them, both personally and professionally.
  • Use the cloud safely: Online applications store your data on the Internet. These tips help ensure your data remains safe and uncompromised.
