Join us for a 3-part series on how to assess, identify, and mitigate vulnerabilities arising from so many people being forced to work remotely at a time when cybercrime is on the rise.

You’ll hear about the most effective tools and strategies to keep your work safe at home, train staff to recognize and report threats, and support nonprofit partners’ cybersecurity.

Cyber criminals are taking full advantage of the opportunity to attack under-protected organizations when they are most vulnerable. The FBI reports an average of 3,000 - 4,000 cybercrimes per day since the start of the pandemic -- an astonishing increase from the average of 1,000, pre-COVID-19.

Experts at foundations and service organizations specializing in nonprofit cybersecurity and IT management will share information to help you store and protect sensitive data, hold secure virtual meetings, and prevent malicious cyberattacks.

Our final session, Supporting the Cybersecurity of Nonprofit Partners will feature speakers Karen Graham, Director of Education & Outreach at Tech Impact and Michael Enos, Senior Director of Community and Platform at TechSoup. The topics will include how to apply ideas from the first two sessions and gain knowledge about social sector organizations’ varied cybersecurity and IT needs, as well as how to communicate about cybersecurity throughout the grantmaking process. Speakers will present examples of how foundations across the country protect themselves and their partners through updated services and effective cybersecurity practices in grantee organizations. There will be time for questions at the end of the session.
