Join us to discuss the many challenges and opportunities of moving more nonprofit services online!

About this event

As the world relies increasingly on digital touchpoints, nonprofits must adapt their operations to suit the changing needs of their donors and clients. While this presents many opportunities, it also comes with increased cyber risk.

Join us to hear from MAX Ottawa and a cyber expert from HUB International on opportunities for moving operations digitally and how to mitigate cyber risk to your organization.

This webinar will include:

  • Discussion with a nonprofit – How MAX Ottawa pivoted during COVID-19 to provide online programs and services to their clients and their future plans.
  • Presentation from a cybersecurity expert – Risks and responsibilities that arise when operating online platforms and working with third party vendors. Also, strategies to recognize and mitigate cyber risk to your nonprofit.
