Cyber-Security for Nonprofits

The next Philly Net Tuesday will be on Tuesday, January 7, 2014 at the Friends Center, 1501 Cherry Street.  Doors open at 6:00 PM, and the program will begin promptly at 6:30.

Are you concerned with the security of your organization's data? Your sensitive employee, client, volunteer or donor information could be highly vulnerable, along with your reputation and future. While high-profile data leaks dominate the headlines, many data breaches occur at the small organization / small business level.

Join us on January 7, 2014 for an evening devoted to your organization's security. Austin Morris Jr. of Morris Risk Management LLC will discuss cyber-security, including these topics:

• Strong passwords

• Botnets, Viruses, Worms, Trojans

• Malicious code

• Phishing

• Social engineering attacks

• Protecting your data against malicious employees, negligence, and mistakes

• Preparing for a data breach, usually not if but when

• Forensics, notification, monitoring, legal guidance

• Security and privacy (cyber liability) insurance

• PA State Notification Laws

This session is relevant for every organization, and ideal for orgs that engage in e-commerce or deal with sensitive healthcare, employee, client or member information.

“Nearly 60% of small businesses will shutter within half a year after being victimized by cybercrime.” (The Wall Street Journal - March 2013)  

This session won't be recorded or live-streamed, so be sure to come in person.

RSVP’s are appreciated for planning purposes (though not required).

Thanks to the American Friends Service Committee for sponsorship.

    It was a good overview of cyber security and how it applies to non-profits. As a few people mentioned, a follow-up would be nice, maybe one that has practical examples on how to increase our secuirty. Perhaps a workshop of sorts?
