HR’s Role In Cybersecurity: How To Minimize The Risk Of Data Security Breaches
|Date / Time:
Target, Home Depot, and Anthem. These are some of the big-name companies that have fallen victim to significant and costly data security breaches recently. And let’s not forget Sony, whose leak resulted in an HR nightmare: the public dissemination of many personal and embarrassing email messages.
No organization is immune to hack and the average cost of a company data breach has risen to $3.5 million, according to a recent study by the Ponemon Institute. That means protection and prevention is absolutely critical.
HR plays a fundamental role in minimizing the risk of data security breaches. You should be training employees and managers on their respective responsibilities to protect your company’s data. Engaging in proper training and having an open stream of communication with IT about current and emerging data security threats to your organization’s sensitive and confidential data can go a long way toward mitigating the inevitable threats that hackers pose nowadays.
Is your organization ready to handle the cost, the lost productivity, and litigation a data breach is likely to cause?

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
