IT Security Incident Response for Nonprofits Pt 1
Show Notes

You get a frantic call from a staff member – your nonprofit organization has been hacked. Now what? What do you do first? What should your IT security incident response be?

Join Community IT Innovators CTO Matt Eshleman and President and CEO Johan Hammerstrom for a worst-case scenario walk through. They discuss several possible breaches – email, Office 365, servers, etc. Matt shares his experience responding to credential hacks and other situations, and presents a checklist you should include in your security policies.

Forewarned is forearmed, and if you haven’t been hacked yet, it never hurts to know what you would do. Participants who had experienced a hack were invited to share experience with us, and what they wish they’d done differently in their response to more quickly get their organization back on their feet.

We have several webinars and resources on creating your security policy and training your staff available here. This webinar is specific to planning your response in the event you experience a breach.
