Okta for Good launches new grant portfolio to improve cybersecurity for non-profits

CybersecurityGovernmentTop Stories

Okta, a leading independent identity provider, has announced the launch of a Non-profit Cybersecurity Portfolio and US$1,020,000 in grants to support better security across the social sector.

Stemming from Okta’s three-year commitment to invest US$10 million out of the Okta for Good Fund, a donor-advised fund held at Tides Foundation, this grant comes at a time when non-profits are facing increased cyberattacks, putting millions of already vulnerable people at even greater risk.

More than 50% of non-profits report being targeted by cyberattacks, yet most do not have the resources to maintain adequate cybersecurity plans. Non-profits are integral in doing society’s most important work in coming together for common good. Their data and the people they serve must be protected.

Okta’s Non-profit Cybersecurity Portfolio, which is part of Okta’s Non-profit Technology Initiative, is the company’s first step in supporting better security for non-profits through six grants that provide resourcing for projects ranging from training to incident response support.

The funds will be distributed between six different organizations and projects, selected in partnership with external non-profit security experts and Okta Security leadership including David Bradbury, CSO, Okta, and Jameeka Green Aaron, CISO, Auth0, a product unit of Okta.

The grantees selected are:

  • CyberPeace Institute
  • NetHope
  • Norwegian Refugee Council
  • Simply Secure
  • TechSoup Civil Society Strengthening Fund:
  • UC Berkeley Center for Long-term Cybersecurity (CLTC)
