2018 Luncheon Series: Data Breaches in the Workplace

March 15 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm


Data Breaches in the Workplace – How to Prepare and How to Respond

Event: $25/members; $35/non-members

This is the season for W-2 phishing scams and it is always the season for ransomware.  This legal update will show Human Resources how to protect their organization by properly preparing the workforce for data privacy/security incidents and breaches.  It is no longer “IF” an organization will be hit with some sort of data incident or breach – but “WHEN”.  We will review employee training and recommended policies, including an incident response plan, that will make your WHEN more manageable.  Over 70% of all data breaches involve human error.  Human Resources can decrease this human error by educating the workforce.  How are you preparing the humans in your organization?
