CPAR GOV/NFP - Vol. 2020 - No. 1 - 02 - Cyber Crime For Government Agencies & NFPS: Care To Be Aware!

Course Overview
In the world we live in, data is all around us. Government agencies may have standards and protocols, but they are not always followed properly, and nonprofit organizations have limited resources, and tight budgets that do not allow the creation of a safer cyber environment. Jake Lehmann and William Mendez from CyZen, a Friedman LLP Company, discuss cybersecurity issues affecting government agencies and nonprofit organizations. They give us their insights as to “who” the threat actors are, their capabilities and motivation, and what steps to take to thwart them.

  • Identify threat actors and the objectives of each group,
