Practical Tips & Tools Series: Cybersecurity 101 for Nonprofits
With the nation on high alert, cyber security is an increasingly important issue for nonprofit
organizations, but many organizations lack the resources and expertise to protect themselves.
Nonprofit organizations are expected to secure critical data, including donor information, that can be
exposed in an instant and devastate an organization if not protected properly and individuals within
your organization have not been educated about cyber threats. With the number of attacks against
nonprofit organizations having increased considerably over the past few years, many nonprofits are
not prepared to deal with cyber threats.
● Hackers attack every 39 seconds. (University of Maryland)

● More than 70% of nonprofits have not even run one vulnerability assessment to evaluate their
potential risk exposure. (Cohn Reznick)
● Only 20% of nonprofits have a policy in place to address cyberattacks. (NTEN)
This webinar is meant to educate and inform your nonprofit about:
● Importance of cyber security to nonprofits
