Title: The Heart of Cybersecurity: Securing Our Connected World – Cybersecurity and Nonprofits
Recorded: July 8, 2021
Description: In today’s interconnected digital world, if one organization (or worse, market segment) is left unprotected, it creates a domino effect, placing all of its connections, their connections, and more at risk. Although there is a clear need, commercial security solutions routinely overlook mission-based and nonprofit organizations, offering solutions for the enterprise environment without considering the specific challenges these organizations face. For too long, nonprofit organizations have been forced to ‘go it alone’ with limited assistance or expert counsel. Join us to hear how Sightline Security is blazing a new trail with a proven approach to providing the situational understanding and expert insights these underserved organizations have been missing. Hear how Sightline’s innovative, directed, and patient approach helps nonprofits balance the severity of risks with budget-constrained investments to make the best decisions regarding increased protection and budget allocation.
