Hot Topics in Not-for-Profit Law: Managing Data Privacy & Cyber Risks for Nonprofits (OnDemand)
Originally held on Monday, November 6, 2023 | 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
In response to the pandemic, donors’ increasing engagement with technology, and the pressing need to engage with younger generations, among a host of other motivations, nonprofits are embracing technology even more as a critical tool in accomplishing their missions. While this shift allows nonprofits to realize new efficiencies, reach new stakeholders and beneficiaries, tap into remote talent, and more, it also brings along significant risks. Smart leadership will anticipate those risks, ensuring their nonprofits understand the applicable laws and best practices and are taking proactive steps to mitigate data privacy and cybersecurity risks effectively.
This CLE program will explore how nonprofits can navigate the ever-changing landscape of data privacy and cybersecurity in order to maintain trust, protect stakeholders, and ensure compliance with relevant regulations. The opening session will provide nonprofit leadership and practitioners with an overview of data privacy laws at the federal and state levels – as well as potentially applicable overseas frameworks – and their applicability to nonprofits, current developments and trends with respect to data privacy legislation, and key best practices for nonprofits that collect data from donors, clients and other relevant parties. The second panel will explore the flip side of the data privacy discussion, offering a step-by-step guide to preparing for and responding to seemingly ubiquitous data privacy breaches. The program will conclude with a discussion on remote work and bring-your-own device policies, including details on how best to manage and minimize data privacy, cybersecurity and other risks inherent in each.
Three key skills you will learn:
1) How to mitigate risk when conducting programming and other nonprofit activities online;
2) How to prepare for and respond to a data privacy breach; and
3) How to implement remote work and BYOD policies that will minimize risk for your nonprofit.
