Data is more vulnerable than ever these days, and the importance of proper data security cannot be overstated. Among the top targets for data criminals are payroll and HR departments, custodians of sensitive information such as Social Security numbers, addresses, wages, and bank account numbers. Breaches of sensitive data can be detrimental to your company’s reputation and financial standing, causing serious problems for your employees whose information was stolen and bringing about lawsuits that may take years to resolve.
Your IT department likely keeps up with a number of data security measures as it relates to company systems, but what can you do within the payroll or HR department to keep your employee data secure? While you cannot stop criminals from attempting to steal your data, you can thwart their efforts through the creation of email and internet best practices, ongoing employee training, and staying up to date on the latest tactics criminals are using.
Join us as we explore the latest scams we’re seeing as well as best practices you can employ within your department to avoid falling into the trap and becoming a data breach headline.
