Event description

Description

It almost seems like a silly question – who would steal from a non-profit? After all, what do they have that’s worth stealing? And what kind of person would even think to target this kind of organization? According to police sources, non-profit and charitable websites are a frequent target of cybercrime and online hackers because they often use free software, inexpensive hosting, and lack the expertise to adequately protect themselves. They are also often understaffed and make frequent use of volunteers – both of which can make it difficult for the organization to enforce proper security protocols.

A security incident that turns into a validated security breach can lead to devastating financial or reputational loss. In a world where it isn’t a question of “if,” but “when” your organization may find itself the target of a cyber incident, a cyber incident response plan may be your lifeline to weathering the storm.

Join Integree-T Security Solutions' Carol Collinge, Founder and CEO, and Alejandro Ibarra, Founder and CIO, as they delve into cybercrime and explain how your non-profit can better protect itself.

Participants will:

  • Gain a greater understanding of the current cybercrime threat landscape
  • Learn about privacy information legislation and reporting requirements, if/when a security breach occurs
  • Discover the key factors to help build an incident response plan
  • Take away tips for staff and volunteers on cybercrime prevention

Bring your lunch and a readiness to learn - we'll provide refreshments.
