Churches and Cybersecurity Risks
What churches can do to protect against hackers and security breaches.

With many churches now relying upon technology and online platforms to share and store information about the church, the risk of churches being targeted by hackers is a growing threat. In fact, failing to take action to prevent hacking or other cybersecurity breaches is a serious oversight for churches that could result in cyberliability claims in the event that the church is targeted by hackers.

“I think any time you have a church that stores information electronically, whether it’s employee information or the information of members of the congregation, there’s exposure for some cyberliability claims or cyberliability types of events,” explains Joshua Lederman, an attorney with Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Company.
