July 11: How Vulnerable Are You?
Cyber-attacks are on the rise. Though they can take a number of different forms, what they all have in common is the devastating financial and reputational effect they can have on an organization. How vulnerable is yours? In this session, we’ll focus on identifying the variety of threats nonprofits are facing and look at common habits and practices that make your organization vulnerable to attacks. We will explore how much a security breach can cost your nonprofit and share ways to assess your current risk and exposure.

July 18: Keeping Your Organization Secure
Now that we have an idea of what kinds of attacks you could be facing, we’ll move toward keeping your organization secure. In this session, we will share tips and tricks to boost security using existing software like Microsoft Office, how to establish security policies, and the best ways to train your staff about security issues. Depending on the results of your organization’s risk assessment, it may be worth investing in stronger security measures—we’ll share some of the tools and professional assessment and monitoring services available to help you make the best decision for your needs.
