Data Security: Just Tell Me What to Do Please!


Many nonprofits face a “perfect storm” of risk: managing data on behalf of vulnerable populations without the resources to combat increasingly sophisticated cyber security threats.

Attendees will leave with an understanding of what’s happening at the frontiers of data security policies and best practices, as well as immediate steps that any organization can take to deliver the best “bang for your buck” when it comes to improving data security at your nonprofit. We’ll focus on the importance of training, and take a deep dive into multi-factor authentication as a relatively simple and highly effective tool.

If you’re responsible for keeping any part of your organization’s data secure but you don’t have a lot of time or resources, this session is for you.

Target Audience

IT decision makers, privacy/security professionals, nonprofit leaders and executives, anyone with the ability to make or recommend technology decisions
