Gain an overview of the federal and state laws that impose data security requirements impacting the various types of HR records, including how to respond to data breaches.
While technology has significantly improved the capabilities and effectiveness of the workforce, it also can be the source of significant compliance risks. As the recent Equifax incident has highlighted, information security breaches are an all too common headline in today’s news. But all employers, whether large or small, are at risk. HR records contain sensitive employee data, including social security numbers, dates of birth, employment history, payroll/banking, employee benefit plans, medical records, and background check information. In addition to the risks associated with theft of confidential or proprietary company data, HR departments must be vigilant to prevent unauthorized access, use, or disclosure of sensitive employee data whether via outside malicious attacks or careless human error. But how?
For too long, many looked solely to the IT department to address this risk. Best practice, however, dictates that HR becomes knowledgeable about, and plays a central role in, championing workplace privacy and data security alongside their IT colleagues. This webinar will provide HR professionals with an overview of the federal and state laws that impose data security requirements impacting the various types of HR records, including how to respond to data breaches. It also will review recent threats directed at employee data and will provide practical guidance on how HR departments can implement manageable processes to improve their information security posture.
