It is absolutely critical for HR and IT to work together to limit the potential risk of a cyber attack.
Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) January 27, 2015
In light of several high-profile data breaches in recent months, Sageview Consulting released a list of unique challenges that HR professionals face when dealing with these crises. A national leader in outsourced solutions for human resources management, talent acquisition and management, benefits and compensation, training, and organizational development and executive search, Sageview Consulting stressed the importance of planning, training and coordination when dealing with a data breach.
Sageview Consulting President Aimee Kaye and Managing Partner Marilyn Hausner have extensive experience in helping companies identify risks and find innovative and effective solutions to protect themselves. They said that data security cannot be left solely to IT professionals, and that HR must play an integral role in setting priorities, creating procedures, training staff and limiting access to sensitive information.
“Protecting against data breaches is often viewed as an IT responsibility, but Human Resources professionals can play an important role as well,” said Sageview Consulting Managing Partner Marilyn Hausner. “By training employees in very basic security practices, many cyber attacks can be thwarted before they ever begin. It is absolutely critical for HR and IT to work together to limit the potential risk of a cyber attack.”
Sageview Consulting President Aimee Kaye added, “HR professionals also have an important role to play in screening potential employees who have access to sensitive information, and in creating policies for responding in the unfortunate event of a data breach. Keeping employees informed in the aftermath of a cyber attack is a big challenge, and companies need to be prepared.”
