CNJG is proud to be able to offer this webinar to members through the United Philanthropy Forum and its partners. 

The number and sophistication of cybersecurity threats have undoubtedly increased. Facebook’s data breach, Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election and the frequent data breach alerts from banks and retailers are just some examples. It is in this context that we as a country are preparing for the 2020 Census, the first ever Census that will rely on digital response. 

The security of the digital collection and storage of information is still unclear despite numerous public- and private-sector cybersecurity experts calling for greater transparency on the Census Bureau’s protocols and systems. Considering these challenges philanthropy must take a leadership role in ensuring transparency from the Census Bureau, supporting critical local infrastructure and public policy that encourages full participation in the census. The accuracy of this data is critical to philanthropy for it is this data which our sector and the communities we care about will depend for the next ten years. 

Join this webinar to learn why the security concerns surrounding Census 2020 matters to you as operations leaders in philanthropy and what IT leaders can do to lend their voices to this issue.
