“As the frequency and high costs of data breaches increase, Nonprofits and associations need to assess their IT environments and security to locate vulnerabilities. Cyber threats are increasingly targeting data rich environments like Nonprofits—not just banks and financial institutions. The currency of data as a whole has increased leading to financial gain for cyber attackers,” said Vlad Friedman, Founder and CEO at Edge Hosting.
Lee Hornstein, CEO of (C) Systems Global, said, “We are so pleased to offer this complimentary webinar to association and Nonprofit leaders through our partnership with Edge Hosting. This high level of information sharing and establishing of best practices for cybersecurity plays a critical role in how associations plan for and protect their members from very real threats. This is the best use of time for IT professionals and other association leaders thinking about the future.”
Compared to huge associations or major hospitals, Nonprofits may not seem like the ideal target for hackers. And yet, small Nonprofits may be most vulnerable to attacks for several reasons, including a volunteer-based staff that doesn’t have the resources to follow security best practices, the collection of personally identifiable information from donors and the use of shadow databases.
