Cyber-security webinar aimed at nonprofits

Cyber attacks are costing business around the world an estimated $400 billion a year, an expense that’s only expected to keep growing.

Major corporations and small businesses are not the only enterprises at risk of losing valuable personal data and finances to hackers.

Nonprofits are just as vulnerable, particularly given their relatively limited resources to protect themselves from an attack or recover once one has been detected.

That’s why the Delaware Small Business Development Center, the Delaware Alliance for Nonprofit Advancement and University of Delaware’s Center for Community Research and Service are hosting a free cyber-security webinar on Sept. 20 designed specifically for the nonprofit community.

The one-hour online workshop will cover common risks and behaviors that can expose an organization to a data breach, how to detect and respond to a possible hack and how to recover using the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s cyber-security framework.

The webinar will be led by Michelle Wang, a cyber-security expert and the assistant director of Information Security Administration for the Presbyterian Church’s board of pensions. She is both a certified information systems professional and a certified information security manager with a background working with nonprofits.

The webinar will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. Although participation is free, advance registration is required. A link to the webinar site will be emailed to registered participants 24 hours before the program begins.
