Burlington, MA (PRWEB) September 14, 2005
On October 14, 2005, IHRIM is presenting ÂManaging Your HR Information Security Risks,Â a course to be held at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Any HR or HR systems professional involved in the capture, use, management, or dissemination of information about people has a role to play in helping to protect that information from compromise or theft. This one-day course highlights the role and contribution each person can make to the overall security of that information, and is being offered by IHRIM at a special, one-time introductory registration fee (http://www.ihrim.org/events/risks/1005_ChevyChase.asp).
Technology has ushered in the age of self-service applications, portals, decision support systems, electronic signatures, wireless, and the like. Theft and compromise of HR information is a routine occurrence fueling an explosion of fraud and identity theft crimes. This and the public's growing uneasiness about privacy issues are driving the creation of new laws, regulations and employer liabilities. Outsourcing, offshoring, and the continual drive to slash overhead costs are all contributing to this transformation of HR information management. What you did even three years ago to manage information about people is not sufficient now.
This course will include a discussion of how these changes are impacting policies, procedures, responsibilities, and liabilities throughout the information lifecycle and the records management function. As a bonus, attendees will be provided with a set of assessment templates they can use back at the job, a summary of some key legal/regulatory statutes, and a listing of useful information sources. Seating is limited and registration is on a first come, first served basis. The registration fee includes:
Â· 4.5 credit hours of intensive education,
Â· Exclusive learning environment with renowned expert in the HRMS disciplines,
Â· Certificate of Accomplishment,
Â· All course materials, and
Â· Morning refreshments and lunch. The meal breaks will provide an excellent opportunity to network with the instructor and fellow participants.
The course presenter will be Nevin Maffett, president of Application Outfitters and chairman of IHRIMÂs Privacy and Security Special Interest Group. He has presented on topics such as Identity Theft, Project Management, Security Basics, and Team Building at various conferences including the American Payroll Association, IHRIM, PeopleSoft and other organizations
