Are you providing guidance to help staff members avoid scams, malicious software and the inappropriate handling of data? Do staffers use their personal phones or computers to do work? What guidelines are in place to make sure your social media posts are appropriate? Do you know what to do if your offices experience a flood or fire?

If you don’t have written policies—and regular training to ensure that people understand those policies—your organization may be facing bigger risks than you think. This course will walk you through the questions you should consider as you develop policies to protect your nonprofit.

Series includes:
Aug. 10 - Acceptable Use and IT Security
Computers and office software are so familiar it’s easy to assume that everyone knows what’s OK and what’s not. But that false sense of security can cause a lot of problems. This session will help you develop clear guidelines for what is and is not acceptable on organization devices and networks. We’ll also provide IT security tips to guide your policy so that you’re less likely to fall victim to ransomware and other malicious software.
