Nonprofit organizations collect, store, and use personal information from members, donors, employees, volunteers, business associates, and the constituents they serve. This webinar will address data privacy risks, obligations, and best practices, focusing on electronic data, but applicable also to “paper” records. We will discuss:
• prudent information governance;
• data breach and incident response; and
• risk mitigation and “cyberliability” insurance.
Presenter: Candice DeCaire, Kilpatrick Townsend
Data security and data breaches seem to be in the news constantly. While most of the press tends to go to mega data breaches involving millions of potentially affected individuals, data breaches can—and do—occur at organizations of all types and sizes. Nonprofits, including small nonprofits, almost certainly have personal information about donors, employees, volunteers and clients that needs to be secured. This article identifies ten steps that a nonprofit can take to help protect the personal information it holds.
As a nonprofit, your organization may have access to a lot of information about a lot of different people, including clients, volunteers, employees and donors. Information is necessary to enable your organization to better serve your clients, manage your volunteers and employees, and communicate with your donors. But mismanagement of information can have legal consequences or, worse yet, damage your reputation in the community.
This webcast will answer the following questions:
• What are the basic privacy and data security legal and regulatory requirements every nonprofit should know?
• How can your organization collect, use, share, and dispose of personal information without getting into trouble?
• What happens if the personal information you collect is lost or stolen?
• What are some privacy and data security best practices that you can implement today?

Small nonprofits raising money often accept credit, debit and pre-paid card (also known as payment card) payments online and in person. Nonprofits take these payments at silent auctions and other events, and almost all have DONATE NOW buttons on their websites. The way in which nonprofits accept and process these transactions can expose the nonprofits to potential liability. While trying to limit this exposure, nonprofits can’t forget about the charitable solicitation laws that apply to them.
During this one-hour webcast, our speakers will:
- Provide a general overview of the risks and liabilities of accepting credit, debit and pre-paid card payments;
- Describe the compliance requirements for accepting such payments;
- Discuss the differences between accepting payments directly versus using an online payment processor;
- Describe how a nonprofit can limit its exposure; and
- Provide an overview of the charitable solicitation issues in accepting online donations
