News Cybersecurity 101 can help you prevent a costly attack

Cybersecurity is one of the challenges nonprofit leaders will face in 2020 according to The NonProfit Times.

“Many nonprofits are ill-equipped to guard the privacy of their staffs, donors and clients against hacking and cyber-terrorism. The number of organizations held hostage by cyber-criminals continues to increase yearly, and many nonprofits are increasingly vulnerable to malware, phishing and cyber-attacks of all stripes. While there have only been a few well-publicized instances of substantial data breaches at nonprofits, it’s only a matter of time before another one becomes the next high-profile victim. Expect to see younger leaders pay more attention to upgrading their technology platforms and installing security systems to guard their private information,” writes Timothy J. McClimon, senior vice president of corporate social responsibility at American Express.

Get ahead of the challenges and protect your agency with the Council’s Cybersecurity 101 program on April 14 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Council’s Learning Center in Framingham.

Vassilis Kontoglis of the accounting firm AAFCPAs will discuss what makes organizations vulnerable to  attacks and the steps needed to develop a cybersecurity action plan.
