Jersey City, NJ, September 17, 2009 - Non-profit organizations with poor security could be inviting hackers to steal confidential member and donor information, eroding the public trust that staff and volunteers have worked hard to earn. To prevent intrusion, Comodo has donated SSL certificates and HackerGuardian™ PCI scanning services to TechSoup.org for use by qualifying nonprofit organizations.
" For organizations involved in health services or payment processing, using a security protocol such as TLS/SSL to encrypt network communications may be a federal or commercial requirement. For other organizations, using TLS/SSL might simply be a good idea ," Carlos Bergfeld, a Web Content Editor at TechSoup, wrote in An Introduction to Transport Layer Security on the site.
TechSoup.org provides a range of technology services for non-profits, including discounted and donated technology products, articles, a blog, discussion forums, and ongoing webinars.
