New Benefit Announcement
Cyber Monitoring - At no additional charge!

We're pleased to announce that Cyber Monitoring is now available for no additional charge for participants in First Nonprofit's Unemployment Programs. This new program benefit is provided for our members and clients by AmTrust Solutions.

Why enroll in AmTrust Cyber Monitoring?
AmTrust Cyber Monitoring scans the Dark Web for the proprietary business data that you specify, such as company email addresses, bank accounts, routing numbers, and corporate credit card/debit card information. If we find your data is being traded on the Dark Web, we'll alert you and are available to assist you to resolve the situation.

Why is cyber monitoring important?
Identity theft is a threat to small businesses and nonprofit organizations. Both are targeted by cyber criminals because they know smaller employers are less likely to have sophisticated cyber protection and safety protocols in place. We encourage you to take advantage of this new, optional service by enrolling today.
After securely enrolling, you will receive an email with your login information. Once you have logged in, you will be asked to list the email addresses, bank accounts, credit card numbers, etc., that you want monitored (up to 10 each). Only the accounts and numbers listed by you will be monitored.

Cyber Monitoring is an important first step to protect your organization from the potential ramifications of business identity theft. There's no extra charge for this benefit. It is optional and provided for you by First Nonprofit. So why wait? Sign up today.

NOTE: The Cyber Monitoring dashboard and terms of use may mention a 150 employee maximum for this service, however this is not a requirement for the Cyber Monitoring service. Please call AmTrust Solutions at 877-284-9025 if you have any questions regarding this new benefit.

Located in McPherson, Kansas, MCDS first began serving people with disabilities in 1972. Initially providing only a half day preschool program for six students, today MCDS provides a wide range of services, including residential services, case management, transportation, an intermediate care facility, and children services touching hundreds of families.

Through its McPherson Industries programs, MCDS also introduces persons with disabilities to rewarding, enriching and satisfying work experiences.
