Communal Cybersecurity Initiative


CJP’s Communal Cybersecurity Initiative (CCI) supports a thriving Jewish community by helping our partners understand and address rising cybersecurity threats. From synagogues to schools to social service agencies, many organizations can benefit from increased protection against ransomware, phishing attacks, viruses, and other online threats. 

For many of our communal organizations, accessing the expertise, funding, and training needed in a rapidly evolving landscape can be overwhelming. That’s why we created CCI, a new effort that combines the expertise of CJP’s IT Department and our Communal Security Initiative. CCI works with our partners to address potential cybersecurity threats, facilitates access to services, and provides funding assistance to eligible organizations.

For qualifying organizations within CJP's catchment area, our CCI program offers free online, self-paced, cybersecurity training for staff members, as well as access to cybersecurity assessments and select cyber and technology vendors to deliver services at a manageable cost.
