The risks of working remotely: What nonprofits need to know about cybersecurity and the cloud

The pandemic changed the way we think about how and where to work. For many nonprofits, the extraordinary quick push to collaborate using cloud tools and to move files to the cloud meant little to no time to establish secure remote work practices or consider a cloud security plan. Even if your nonprofit team has returned to the office full-time, cloud management and remote work options are here to stay. 

Speaker, Jeff Garrett, VP of Solutions Architecture at Opkalla, will explain what happens to your data when you work in the cloud and steps you can take to work more securely from any location.
