Digital Security and Grantcraft Guide report cover

What does the digital security landscape look like for civil society organizations and how can grantmakers better identify groups that may face a higher cybersecurity risk? The Digital Security and Grantcraft Guide, developed by the Ford, MacArthur, and Open Society Foundations and The Citizen Lab as part of the NetGain Partnership, is an important resource to understand both these challenges, and opportunities of the global internet. 

While strong cybersecurity measures to protect their people and assets may be second nature for government and Fortune 500 organizations, civil society groups are generally far less prepared to mitigate and respond to digital attacks.
