- Charles Boname, IT Director, Vancouver Foundation
I.T. Ideas has been supporting the B.C. Wildlife Federation with all our systems needs since 2017. When we had to pivot to work from home in spring of 2020, they were right there with us, supporting new arrangements, understanding our changing needs and challenges, and consistently providing a high level of service along with solutions that meet these needs. We highly recommend I.T. Ideas as a full-service Managed Services Provider.

We switched to I.T. Ideas as our technical service provider in 2017 and have never looked back. They give us top dollar support with non-profit budgets in mind, handling all aspects from equipment purchases to onboarding of users. We could not have pivoted to working from home without their relentless support and assistance, keeping us proactively ahead of technical obscurity as well as the bad guy. We can't say enough about Steve and his amazing staff, past and present.

To become the leading IT Service provider and chosen authority in Canada at helping and empowering not-for-profits, charities and academic organizations who wish to security harden their organizations, to greatly reduce or eliminate legal, financial and reputation risks by safeguarding their data (credit card and personally identifiable information) and keeping customer information safe from cyber-criminals and cyber-terrorism. This "security-first" focus is the basis on which organizations can then implement information technology best practices, processes, and solutions in order to grow sustainably, and to deliver programs more efficiently. The outcome will be to create extraordinarily positive and meaningful impacts within our communities.
To create awareness, educate, and implement tools, processes, policies and procedures that effectively protect not-for-profit organizations from cyber-criminals and preventable attacks and infiltrations.
To use a combination of energy, experience, strategic collaboration, expertise, tools and technology to provide customized technology solutions that are "tailored to fit" not-for-profits, charities, and academic organizations, and leverage economies of scale to ensure that these solutions are cost-effective.
During the COVID pandemic of 2020, most organizations were forced to re-invent the way that they deliver services, and most had to adopt work-from-home as a new norm. Unfortunately, for most organizations, this meant an extremely rushed pivot of technology to accommodate. Most now utilize Virtual Private Networks and Remote Desktop Services and a variety of file sharing and collaboration platforms and tools to grant remote access to their assets. Unknowingly, they have now greatly elevated their security risk and exposure to threat actors. They are also losing control over their electronic assets. Due to budget constraints many organizations have permitted the use of home PCs and personal devices for remotely accessing their files and networks, turning a blind eye to information leaks, data sprawl, and worse - the elevated risks of allowing access to their organizations from devices and sources that are not properly protected and completely out of their control.
Through our mission, we want to empower organizations to reduce their risks, control costs, become aware of the opportunities that technology has to offer, proactively plan and prevent costly mistakes, and ultimately leverage technology to implement programs more efficiently. This in turn will have a massive positive impact on our society and on our communities who so desperately need the help and support.
