Protect your nonprofit from cyber attacks

WannaCry compromises over 200,000 computers

There’s a new wave of ransomware sweeping the globe. Last week, more than 200,000 computers were infected in 150 countries by the WannaCry Decryptor, which encrypts users’ files while the attackers extort money to unlock them.

Many nonprofits don’t realize they’re vulnerable until it’s too late. In fact, nonprofits are often at greater risk:

  • Nonprofits typically lack IT and IT security knowledge.
  • Nonprofits tend to have fewer IT-related staffing resources.
  • Hackers can steal as much information from 10 small nonprofits as they can from one large business.

We are discounting our Intro to IT Security course, which starts next week, to help more nonprofits gain access to the tools and skills they need to protect themselves from cyber attacks like WannaCry. Leon Wilson, a nonprofit IT security expert with more than 20 years of experience, will share resources and practical tips on how you can protect yourself and your organization.
