Cyber Security: Risk Management for Nonprofits

October 16, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Nonprofit organizations are no less likely to be the target of a cyber attack than for-profit companies. However, the consequences for a nonprofit can be much worse because our ability to achieve our mission depends on the goodwill of our stakeholders, and if we lose our reputation, we risk losing everything.

So what should we be doing?

This course will offer a framework for assessing and managing cyber risks and will offer guidance for responding to a crisis.  Participants will also have the opportunity to create a framework for a working crisis management plan.
