Technology Trends and Developments for Not-for-Profits

Please join CohnReznick and an exclusive group of your peers for breakfast and networking along with an engaging conversation on the top technology issues affecting not-for-profit organizations.

Technology is essential to effectively advancing and managing not-for-profits, helping them to work with greater social impact and executing their overall organizational mission. From thoughtful utilization to enhance both internal and external organizational communication efforts, to increased ability to measure, evaluate, and more successfully track and engage specific initiatives, the use of technology within the not-for-profit sector is wide ranging. However, technology also adds a layer of risk to not-for-profit organizations with regards to privacy, misuse of data, identify theft, and special considerations related to donor anonymity.

In this informative session we will discuss technology trends and developments relevant to not-for-profit organizations including:

  • Security
  • Risk assessment and monitoring
  • Mobile computing
  • Cloud computing
  • Big data
  • Accounting software solutions
  • Infrastructure upgrades and integrations
