Are you concerned with the security of your organization’s data? Your sensitive employee, client, volunteer or donor information could be highly vulnerable, along with your reputation and future. While high-profile data leaks dominate the headlines, many data breaches occur at the small organization / small business level.


Join us on January 7, 2014 for an evening devoted to your organization’s security. Austin Morris Jr. of Morris Risk Management LLC will discuss cyber-security, including these topics:


  • Strong passwords

  • Botnets, Viruses, Worms, Trojans

  • Malicious code

  • Phishing

  • Social engineering attacks

  • Protecting your data against malicious employees, negligence, and mistakes

  • Preparing for a data breach, usually not if but when

  • Forensics, notification, monitoring, legal guidance

  • Security and privacy (cyber liability) insurance

  • PA State Notification Laws

This session is relevant for every organization, and ideal for orgs that engage in e-commerce or deal with sensitive healthcare, employee, client or member information.

“Nearly 60% of small businesses will shutter within half a year after being victimized by cybercrime.” (The Wall Street Journal – March 2013)  

This session won’t be recorded or live-streamed, so be sure to come in person.

RSVP’s are appreciated for planning purposes (though not required).

Thanks to the American Friends Service Committee ( for sponsorship.
