Goodwill Opportunity Campus
Cyber Security: Why it Matters for Nonprofits?
Nonprofits sometimes think that they are too small to be a target for cyber threats. However, because we are small and often less knowledgeable and under resourced when it comes to security, we are easy targets.
And thieves like easy targets. They may not necessarily want our data, though medical and social service data has high value to thieves. But they do want our email lists so that they can begin the slow journey of infiltrating our donors' employers.
Cyber threats can cause more than bad headlines; they can damage relationships and donations.
Register now to learn about why Cyber Security does matter to nonprofits and how to begin to operate more securely.
Thursday, March 23 (11:30am - 1:00pm)
CPCC Harris Campus
