Presented with Nonprofit Learning Lab

Community IT CTO Matt Eshleman presented a new free webinar on 10 Free IT Security Tools for Nonprofits, hosted by the Nonprofit Learning Lab

What should you do to protect your nonprofit from hacks if you don’t know much about IT?

Where can you find expert, current information on practical steps you can take as a nonprofit leader to make sure your staff take cybersecurity seriously, without breaking the budget, or paying for security you don’t understand how to use? Nonprofits are seeing cybersecurity risks and costs go up.

Come learn how to manage cybersecurity basics at every level of your organization, to better protect yourself from scams and frauds.

Matt gives an overview of the threat landscape for nonprofits and shares 10 free IT security tools your organization should be using – and probably already have access to. He also shares a few bonus low-cost tools you can consider, and discusses ways to make cyber security an integrated part of your nonprofit culture.

All staff will find this information relevant, whether or not you have IT responsibilities.

Community IT Innovators is pleased to partner with Nonprofit Learning Lab to present this webinar on free IT security tools for nonprofits. Learn to put safeguards in place to prevent falling victim to scammers and cons.

As with all our webinars, this presentation is appropriate for an audience of varied IT experience.

Community IT and Nonprofit Learning Lab are proudly vendor-agnostic and our webinars cover a range of topics and discussions. Webinars are never a sales pitch, always a way to share our knowledge with our community.
