DIGITAL SECURITY IN AN AGE OF HACKING & CYBERTHREATS: WHAT GRANTMAKERS SHOULD KNOW

A Webinar for Funders
June 8, 2017 • 6pm CET • 12pm EST • 9am PST 
90 minutes

Non-profit organizations are increasingly grappling with the threat of cyberattacks-- and turning to their funders for support. For most grantmakers, however, cybersecurity is not an area of expertise. Reflecting the universality of the cybersecurity threat, nine donor affinity groups offer this webinar focused on how funders can support grantees in addressing and responding to digital security concerns. Content included:

  • A debrief: Digital Security & Grantscraft Guide: An introductory guide for funders.
  • Lessons learned and strategies pursued by a donor that has recently invested in digital security as an area of concern for his/her grantees.
  • Discussion of the strategies and infrastructure already built and in use, particularly as related to grantmaking focused on the Global South, for rapid response/ emergency cybersecurity-related grantmaking.

Speakers:

  • Michael Brennan, Technology Program Officer, Ford Foundation
  • Meerim Ilyas, Senior Program Officer, Urgent Action Fund for Women
