Bite-Sized Learning: Ask Me Anything, Nonprofit Cybersecurity

Tuesday, August 23, 12:30 PM - Tuesday, August 23, 2022, 01:30 PM
Tuesday, August 23, 2022, 12:30 PM - 01:30 PM
Fee: Free

You've got questions. We want to help you get them answered. Once a month we facilitate "Ask Me Anything" sessions within our Bite-Sized Learning series. We hear about nonprofit trends and topics and bring experts in these trends and topics to field your questions about them. Nonprofits of all sizes are welcome. This month you will be able to "Ask Me Anything" about Nonprofit Cybersecurity & Technology. Bring your questions!

Ransomware, Malware, and Phishing – oh my! Technology is complicated; your organization’s IT security, even more so. Data security is a major concern for most nonprofits – information about clients, donors, and peers is necessary to accomplish your mission, and a juicy target for malicious actors. If breached, could your organization weather the compromised data? How can you protect your organization while maintaining your productivity? Join us as we answer your IT and cybersecurity questions so you can make important technology decisions with confidence.

The Bite-Sized Learning events are designed by MCN’s Greater Minnesota team to keep us connected across the state. All are welcome here.
