Cyber Security for Charities and NPO’s: Mitigating Risks and Protecting Data

Dec 12, 2019 12:00 PM EDT


Charities and Non-Profit Organizations have tremendous motivation to protect their digital data, however many do not take the proper steps to mitigate these risks. Historically Charities and NPO’s were not a main target of cyber criminals, but there has been a rash of attacks over the past few years focusing on them. This presentation will discuss some common methods that attackers utilize to gather information before launching an attack, why it is important for organizations to consider the security of their digital data, why organizations need to have a pre and post breach cyber plan, and the reputational risks of a cyber-breach.

This webinar will be presented by Ryan Duquette. Ryan Duquette focuses on litigation support, cyber incident response, privacy and technology risks, digital forensics and cyber fraud matters. Ryan has been an investigator for over twenty years and was previously a police officer focusing on cybercrime and fraud cases. Ryan works closely with clients involved in workplace investigations and civil litigation matters including intellectual property theft, HR investigation and data breaches.

He is a sessional lecturer at the University of Toronto teaching digital forensics, is a former director for the Toronto chapter of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, has been qualified as an expert witness on numerous occasions, and is a frequent presenter at fraud, digital forensics, cybersecurity and investigative conferences worldwide.

Please register for Cyber Security for Charities and NPO’s: Mitigating Risks and Protecting Data on Dec 12, 2019 12:00 PM EDT.
