Cybersecurity for Humanitarian NGOs

ALERT: Ongoing malware campaign against NGOs

The CyberPeace Institute has recently detected that a number of NGOs have fallen victim to an ongoing malspam campaign. If you think your NGO may have been affected, please reach out to us as our Assistance team and CyberPeace Builders program may be able to help.

The Strength of NGOs: Cybersecurity for Humanitarian NGOs

Humanitarian organizations provide critical services throughout the world, such as safeguarding access to water, food, energy, finance, or responding to the needs of people made vulnerable by pandemics, displacement or climate change.  Their mission is about assistance and protection of vulnerable communities and ensuring sustainable development, yet they lack resources and support to endure online threats. As a result, the populations they protect are at greater risk. Cybersecurity for Humanitarian NGOs is essential.

The CyberPeace Builders are cybersecurity experts from the private sector who volunteer to help humanitarian organizations. Interested? Contact us!
