Are you a non-profit manager who lays awake at night worrying that your organization will be the next data-breach headline story on the 6 o’clock news? Do you worry that you or one of your associates will click on “the wrong thing” and your client’s data will be siphoned out of your database? Have you heard that charities are becoming a big target for hackers? Are you thinking about moving to “The Cloud” but have concerns about data safety? Would you like to know what to say to your Board about IT security? If you answered yes to any of these questions, the “CyberSecurity for the Non-Profit Sector” session is for you. In this session you will jump-start your security knowledge by receiving insight on topics that are fundamental to securing your organizational and client data. We will review case studies that show how real-world organizations have missed the mark in the area of cyber security and how your organization can get it right using some baseline best practices and solutions.

Thank you for this great session! There was so much useful information. I look forward to getting the presentation for follow-up.
I wanted to share a blog post that I wrote for my colleagues (mostly online campaigners and organizers) to help them realize the importance of security and get them started using better practices: https://www.momsrising.org/blog/the-threat-from-hackers-is-real-what-can-you-do-about-it
