This annual research project conducted by Infoxchange aims to recognise areas of growth and improvement by understanding how not-for-profit organisations across Australia and New Zealand use technology.
This report provides a comprehensive overview of how the sector has been utilising technology over the past 12 months.
Key findings from the 625 organisations that participated in the survey include:
- 57% indicated they now have all the necessary infrastructure in place so that staff can work remotely with ease and efficiency. This is a huge increase from the 2021 report, where only 24% were able to fully support staff working away from the office.
- 78% plan to move a significant portion of IT services to the cloud, or are already there.
- 56% indicated that their staff are confident with their digital skill level. Building the digital capability of staff is now the number one priority for organisations coming out of COVID-19.
- Only 47% of organisations indicated that they provide cyber-security awareness training to their staff, with most of these organisations also having no processes in place to manage information security related risks.
- More than 1 in 3 not-for-profits are also yet to implement multi-factor authentication, a simple step to significantly improve information security.
- Only 41% of organisations reported that their information systems allow them to understand their impact.
- Australian not-for-profits spent 30% more on technology infrastructure than in 2021.
Respondents indicated that improving cyber-security protocols and staff knowledge in this area is a key priority for the next 12 months.
