Nonprofit Technology Policy Workbook

Create and document policies, provide IT guidance, respond to IT incidents, and recover your technology after disasters with this workbook.

Good technology policies protect your organization’s data and reputation by providing clear guidance on what’s acceptable and how to manage risky situations.

By documenting your policies, sharing them widely, training users to understand them, and enforcing them consistently, your nonprofit can significantly reduce the risks and ensure that everyone is clear on what’s expected.

We created this workbook in 2017 to help you think through specific policies to manage your risk and updated it in 2020 to reflect changing knowledge and best practices. It contains prompts to help you create and document policies for the acceptable use of technology and networks, personal devices for work, how to provide IT guidance to “accidental techies,” how to respond to an IT incident, and how to recover your technology after a major disaster.

Thanks to sponsors Community IT and WizeHive, it's free to download.
