Techniques of cyber-criminals continue to evolve. A recent study shared by InfoSecurity Magazine reports “Cyber-criminals have adopted an organizational shift in how they carry out their work, implementing corporate best practices and establishing professional businesses to increase the efficiency of their attacks against enterprises and consumers.” This means advanced persistent threats specifically targeted at your organization and employees. AAFCPAs presented this important, and informative session again this year, recognizing that IT security requires continuous improvement, and organizations must stay vigilant, and learn & adapt over time.
AAFCPAs Cyber Security Pros Vassilis Kontoglis and Peter Sebilian take a look back at Cyber incidents in 2017, including: Equifax, WannaCry, Campaign Hacks, etc.  Vassilis and Peter discuss what went wrong, and how nonprofits may mitigate these risks. Additionally, we share insights on cybersecurity trends, what to expect in 2018 and beyond, and recommendations for specific actions that will reduce the most risk.
