Nine Ways to Prevent a Ransomware Attack on Your Nonprofit


It’s a fact: many nonprofits are unprepared for a cyberattack. Are you prepared to lose your donor database, financial records, and all the years of confidential client information, even if it’s in the cloud? What if your nonprofit’s bank account gets wiped out? 🙁

Sixty percent of businesses go out of business within six months of a data breach.

Join us for this non-technical educational session where we will share with you the horror story of a small nonprofit that was hacked, lessons learned, and 9 ways how you can protect your nonprofit from ransomware and other cyberthreats.

Bonus: All attendees will get access to a cybersecurity awareness staff training program, valued at $100, for free.

Fernando Sosa and nonprofit staff will share their perspectives on how they keep up with cyberthreats and how you can do the same.

Hacking for ransom is a growing cyberthreat to local nonprofits like yours. Ransomware is a type of software that hackers use to hold your data hostage by blocking access to files unless your nonprofit agrees to pay the ransom. Victims typically log in to see their files encrypted and a ransom note demanding payment to unscramble the mess and restore business as usual.

Don’t be the next cybercrime victim! Join us!
