10 Free Cybersecurity Tools for Nonprofits and 3 Worth Paying For

Join Community IT Innovators’ CTO cybersecurity expert Matt Eshleman for a video discussion of the 10 free cybersecurity risk-management tools available to nonprofits that want to increase security.

Matt covers free tools that your organization should be using, how they operate, how to set them up, and how to train your staff to USE them.
He also spends time discussing three security tools to pay for, what they do, and why they offer a return on your investment.

Community IT Innovators is vendor-agnostic and does not resell vendor services or tools. Join us for this webinar for our un-biased recommendations and overview of the growing market for free and paid security tools for nonprofits.

With the “price to hack” continuing to decrease, businesses, nonprofits, and individuals are seeing risks go up. Don’t assume your organization won’t be targeted – everyone is a target of multiplying hacks and scams.

There is a 15 minute Q&A following the webinar, with participant questions. As with all our webinars, this presentation is appropriate for an audience of varied IT and security experience.
