Nonprofits Get Free Entry to ISSA-LA 7th Annual Info Security Summit on Cybercrime Solutions
Nonprofits are Some of the Most Vulnerable Organizations for Cybercriminals
“We are offering free registrations to our nonprofit friends because nonprofits, especially large nonprofits, need the information and solutions that our Summit can provide,” said ISSA-LA President Stan Stahl, PhD. “Nonprofits are prime targets of cybercriminals who steal personal identities and commit Internet bank fraud. That’s why we want to give nonprofit executives and their key staff the opportunity to learn about the preventive measures they can implement to better deal with cybercriminals. To us in ISSA-LA, providing free registration for nonprofits illustrates what we mean when we say ‘It takes the village to secure the village’ SM.”
According to USC Price School of Public Policy there are more than 35,000 nonprofit organizations in Los Angeles. It is estimated that they generate more than $40 billion in economic activity and employ over 450,000 people. At least 20% have budgets over $1 million. A significant number of large nonprofits have budgets of more than $10 million.
The ISSA-LA Summit registration is open to anyone interested in learning more about information security but is particularly recommended for information security practitioners along with business and nonprofit executives and senior managers; business professionals in law, accounting, insurance and banking; technical IT personnel; law enforcement professionals fighting cybercrime; and faculty and students in college and university cybersecurity programs.
The Information Security Summit is part of ISSA-LA’s important community outreach program. The goal of the program is to help the community stay safe from cybercrime by enabling the necessary collaboration between businesses, nonprofits, community leaders, technical IT professionals, law enforcement and the information security community.
