Video: How To Protect Your Nonprofit Data from Increased Risks

The 2016 election brought digital security and surveillance into tight focus. Anyone at any time can be targeted. In a webinar we held with Idealware and panelists from several organizations, “New Administration, New Risks? How To Protect Your Nonprofit’s Data,” I moderated a series of presentations with experts: Larry Velez of Sinu, Idealware board member Leon Wilson of the Cleveland Foundation, and Shauna Dillavou of Community Red. It’s an enlightening, practical and inspiring discussion.

Watch the recording of the webinar to learn steps you can start taking today:

Hacking is not just about political organization and internet company breaches — Leon Wilson mentioned several notable nonprofits who have had significant data breaches. The tips in this webinar panel range from simple ones to broader and more complex tactics.

There are some vulnerabilities that may be a surprise to you, such as the weakness of two factor authentication (2FA) when using SMS, the vulnerability of thumb drives and a known insecure backdoor into Skype, which Shauna included in her remarks.

Have a listen  — we cover a lot of ground!

We want to emphasize that increasing your organization’s security is first and foremost about the people, not the objects or software. Taking another look at your security can bring more productivity and safety to your team — it’s about people first, as Larry says.
