Cyber risks in the association sector

  • Preferred target for hackers,

  • System not secure against external threats.

  • In five years, no less than 72 governments, NGOs, and other organizations (the United Nations, and the International Olympic Committee for example) have delivered their confidential data to hackers. *

  • In addition, some players use fundraising: it is a question of trust, this trust must not be threatened by cyberattacks.

  • These organizations often rely on remote workers and volunteers, and a developed digital presence, which makes their networks difficult to govern and protect.


However, a large majority of these players are not aware of the impacts of such an attack on their activity in the medium and short term.


* According to a study by McAfee
