Pre-Conference workshops will be offered Wednesday from 8am to 5pm.


By Tom Francis and George Peavey

The help-a-thon is an ICCM workshop where attendees get to help each-other. People should be willing to share about the technologies used at their own organization, share some of the current issues they are facing, and be able to remote in with some of the other attendees to look at them. In previous years we have: rebuilt email-servers, fixed DNS settings, and talked through everything from wireless deployments to policy issues.


This workshop will be a panel discussion on Machine Learning and AI discussing theology, ethics, impact on missions, advantages, risks, administrative challenges, helpful tools, etc.  Come ready to participate and ask questions!


No matter how you cut it, you can’t avoid it: Your team needs a cybersecurity program.

Cyber-attacks frequent the news, governments are setting privacy and security regulations, customers (and donors) expect it, the board wants to know about it… and you can’t afford to lose communications with a field worker because someone didn’t configure multi-factor authentication.

This workshop will expose you to the basics of building your cybersecurity program based on Ericius Security’s experience helping missionary, anti-trafficking, and corporate teams improve or lay the foundations for computer security programs. We’ll cover:

– Goals and drivers of cybersecurity

– How to evaluate your organization and set your initial direction

– Useful (and affordable) cybersecurity frameworks to help your design

– Commons business rhythms used to build discipline and team culture

– Foundational wins and milestones that maximize security returns and build momentum
