Security and Privacy Processes for Nonprofits

When: Tuesday, November 7

Privacy is all around us. In a hyper connected world where data insight gives organizations a competitive edge, the risks of managing and safeguarding that data – specifically personal data – have increased exponentially. How then, not-for-profit organizations, can influence the importance of privacy and security management while at the same time continue forging relationships with the communities they serve?

Join us for this event where we will explore the opportunities that lie ahead in terms of increasing trust, reputation and brand exposure through the management of Private information.


Here’s a selection of upcoming learning opportunities specifically for nonprofits. If you have a suggestion for our next monthly event email us at

We also recommend you check out the workshops from our friends at Vantage Point and Ladies Learning Code, Camp Tech, Red Academy, Groundswell, and Spring.
