Think your nonprofit is too small, benevolent, or non-appealing of a target to get hacked? Think again! What can be more attractive to an attacker than many nonprofits' lack of dedicated IT personnel, shortage in cybersecurity knowledge, and trove sensitive donor information? In 2017, a small nonprofit that supports cancer victims was breached. Hackers stole donor data and demanded $40,000 to return it and keep it private. When the nonprofit refused to pay, hackers published the data online -- including personal grief letters that had been sent to families. Protect your donors and clients today!
No technical expertise necessary to attend. If you would like to better understand the cybersecurity landscape, the costs of data breaches, and proactive strategies to protect your nonprofit, you'll find this workshop helpful.
