Digital Security and Your Foundation: The Good, Bad, and the Ugly

Members, View the Recording

The second session in our series on digitalization and the community foundation business model dives into business innovations for community foundations designed to address cybersecurity.

Hear from Josh Levy, Stanford’s Digital Civil Society Lab, as he provides practical insight to how to protect yourself in this era of cyber attacks, digital hacks, phishing scams, and breaches of all kinds.

With the realities of endless attacks actually occurring in our technologically, interconnected world, everything you thought—or hoped—was protected is now vulnerable. 

Consider tactics you can take to protect your foundation—its grantees, donors, and staff.  Explore practical considerations for day-to-day operations that expose the risks and further advance your efforts to stay protected from disaster.

Included in this webinar is at least one small step every foundation can take to improve in the area of digital security (and not pie-in-the-sky, wish you could do kinda change).
