If you haven't heard already, Tech Impact is hosting the inaugural Tech Forward Conference this fall. The conference will be hosted in Nashville, Tennessee from Sunday, September 17th to Tuesday, September 19th. It's going to be intimate with only 300 nonprofit attendees so that attendees can get the most out of their experience. The conference focuses on giving the nonprofit community an opportunity to engage, learn, and invision how technology can transform and enhance the impact it leaves on the public.

Often times, hackers are simply opportunists - average people who happened upon some sensitive information and decide to take advantage of it.
