One of the most critical steps to protect your organization is to create a cybersecurity awareness culture. Cybersecurity isn’t a technology problem; it’s often a people problem. Understanding the current threats and what each employee can do to combat those threats is important at all levels of an organization. In this interactive virtual session, you will learn how to implement a culture of cybersecurity awareness within your organization, including training, technology, action plans and policies.

In this class, you will:

  • Understand why your organization needs cybersecurity
  • Learn how to identify technology and data security-related gaps within your organization
  • Learn how to create an action plan and implement cybersecurity awareness training throughout your organization on a regular basis

Additionally, this session will include a security gap analysis on basic IT functions and administer several follow-up tests to the cybersecurity awareness training portion of the seminar.

Who should attend?

Nonprofit professionals at all levels will benefit from this class because the defense against cyber-attacks are every employee’s responsibility.
