Avoiding Employee Data Breaches Has Nothing to Do With Luck …..
We are well into March Madness … and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Teamwork is a key to advancing in the Big Dance and HR and IT could make a powerful team in fighting cybersecurity risks in your company. Just because cybersecurity threats affect cyberspace does not take the human element out of the prevention/mitigation loop. And the Luck of the Irish has nothing to do with it……

Businesses are a treasure trove of information about people – customers, employees, business contacts. Loss or theft of any of these can cost a company both in cold cash and in reputation. HR managers and counsel can make the important connections between HR professionals and security professionals and keep your company in the game.
