[Jon Dartley | Counsel, Perlman + Perlman LLP] Data is among the most valuable assets a nonprofit has and its management and protection should be viewed as a mission-critical stewardship rather than mere compliance. Each year the stakes get higher. Larger and more costly cyber incidents coincide with annually increasing regulatory and liability pressures. Any by no means are nonprofits immune – quite the contrary. Nonprofit organizations large and small have increasingly been the target of attacks that stole, published or manipulated sensitive, personal information. This Data Privacy Boot Camp is designed to help organizations understand and assess risk, implement privacy and security best practices, and develop strong incident response plans to aid in prevention, detection and remediation. While the risks related to an organization’s collection and storing of personal data are considerable, putting into place appropriate practices, policies and procedures can substantially and meaningfully mitigate such risks.
