Webinar • Tuesday, July 21, 2020 • 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET | Qualifies for 1 CAE and 1 CPE


IT/information security was already a top priority. Then, the pandemic sent association staffs home to work. How do you adapt security policies and practices for a challenging “new normal” that’s likely to stick around?

“Pen testing” is just the tip of the iceberg. From policies and practices to training and regulatory compliance, you need to rethink your strategies for protecting valuable assets and reducing potential security threats. Start by updating your information security governance for the COVID-19 era.

Let a security expert show you how to connect the dots so your organization can operate safely.

In this one-hour webinar, IT security expert Rick Bawcum shows associations and nonprofits how to manage the COVID-19 era’s security threats while ensuring confidentiality, integrity and access to critical information—even with so many people working remotely.

Protect your information from new security threats.  You’ll learn how to strengthen IT security to manage threats from outside and inside your organization. You’ll also learn how to turn staff training and well-crafted security policies into front-line defenses.  Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now to protect your organization in the “new normal” with a right-sized approach to information governance, including:

  • What IT security policies you need to put in place
  • How to train staff in real-time when they “click that link”
  • How to comply with GDPR and other privacy regulations as COVID-19 continues to reshape the workplace
  • How to build a roadmap for IT security governance
  • The gains you’ll see from putting strong governance in place

You’ll come away from this webinar understanding best practices for keeping managing threats and keeping your association safe and secure —especially in the work-from-home COVID-19 era.
