Webinar: Protecting your data

Date: 14 Oct 2021

Staysmart week

How are you managing the risks of data breach in your organisation? In 2021 data is at the core of many organisation’s business operations - mailing lists, client data, supporters, employee files – and this interdependence is only set to increase as we work to achieve greater impact and scale. But the rapid growth in digital technologies and data collection also presents a risk. With increased awareness and regulatory scrutiny, cyber security and information security incidents are increasing threats to the ability to do our most important work whilst maintaining impact and trust with those who matter most. In this session we will look at the most common causes of data breaches through a series of case studies and understand some of the high-level cyber security controls and data management principles that can be put in place for reducing risk.

This Webinar will take place live on:

Thursday, October 14, 2021 from 1pm to 2pm AEDT

What's a Webinar?

A Webinar is a seminar that's conducted over the internet.

Viewers watch a remote presentation on their own screens at a set broadcast time and can participate by typing and submitting questions they would like answered by the presenter.

Our Webinars are recorded and a copy is sent out to every registrant by default. So if you aren't able to watch the Webinar live at the scheduled time, you don't need to do anything - we'll send you a copy you can watch at your own pace on your own screen.

Why Webinars work

You'll learn at a time that suits you
If you can't join us at the scheduled time, we will automatically send you a recording you can watch at your own pace.

You can ask your burning questions
Our Webinars include a 45-minute presentation followed by a 15 minute interactive Q&A session where you'll call the shots. You do so by typing your questions during the Webinar.

You don't need an IT degree
There's no complicated software involved. You just need a reliable internet connection to participate. We'll email you instructions at each step too. Simple!
