Cybersecurity in Low-Risk Organizations: Understanding Your Risk and Making Practical Improvements

February 19, 2019 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM Webinar

  • This event has passed.

Mission-driven organizations often need support in identifying and fending off basic online threats. For organizations with decentralized operations or a wide volunteer base, proper connectivity is crucial. However, many organizations want to establish an online presence quickly, and they ignore basic security steps, such as using a formal identity system or multifactor authentication.

This webinar will guide resource-constrained organizations through:

  • Understanding what qualifies as a low-risk organization
  • The basic tenets of cybersecurity
  • A basic, risk-informed decision-making process to identify where they need to invest in digital security

This webinar is designed for public interest organizations whose work is not likely to generate targeted online attacks from motivated actors. Other organizations, like journalists or defenders of human rights, could find the lessons broadly applicable but not addressing their specific needs.
