In 2015, the founding members of CIEN Consulting created the company to provide IT support to its very first client: a non-profit organization. Because nonprofits are obviously not trying to make profits, we understand that you have a very limited budget to work with. Regardless, we always strive to provide realistic recommendations at an affordable cost to all of our clients. You can rest assured that you will have a partner that will work with you to meet your goals and not try to upsell you on unnecessary services.
We got into this industry because we enjoyed solving technology problems. Because of that, we have been able to hone in our skills and expertise. Just like all tech problems in today’s world, you can probably solve them yourself by searching online, however, the big questions are do you really want to, and how much time is it going to take? You have hundreds of other problems that you need to take care of in your nonprofit like applying for your next grant or reaching out to donors. Let us help you take care of those IT problems so you can take care of the more important matters.
Does your nonprofit collect information from your clients, donors, or patrons? Is there anything that might be considered Personally Identifiable Information (PII)? If so, you might have heard of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and EU data privacy laws. These are big ticket items that many non-profit organizations need to be aware of, but are not. It is important to ensure that your organization is compliant with these requirements and that the data you hold is secured. At CIEN Consulting, security is our number one priority and we can help your organization design the technology systems and network to protect your data.
