Strengthening Church’s Cybersecurity with GCFA’s Security Awareness Service
In today's digitally driven world, cybersecurity is more critical than ever. With the rise in cyber threats, ministries are increasingly vulnerable to cyberattacks such as phishing and ransomware. The General Council on Finance and Administration (GCFA) and our ministry service brand, UMC Support, recognize the need for robust cybersecurity solutions tailored to the unique needs of churches within the Connection. To address this need, UMC Support is proud to offer a comprehensive security awareness service to safeguard your congregation's digital assets.
Why Cybersecurity Matters for Churches
Churches store sensitive information such as member data, financial records, and confidential communications— valuable data that can be a prime target for cybercriminals. Because cyberattacks can disrupt church operations, damage reputation, and lead to significant financial losses, protecting this information should never be just a matter of compliance. It’s a moral and ethical obligation to safeguard the trust of your congregation!
