Peering outside of your office, the CEO and CFO in organizations today are becoming increasingly concerned about cybersecurity and the challenges that go far beyond what a CIO can control. Issues surrounding organizational electronic data, how to safeguard the “secret sauce,” and how to ensure that there is no interruption in services or revenue generation have become part of the nightmares that wake up even the most discerning C-Suite officials.

Today’s HR professional must understand and grapple with the real world pressures related to this complex and ever changing issue in order to support and design the tools necessary to carry out the goals of those leading their organizations. To succeed in this technology driven environment where information is created exponentially, merely revising existing policies is not the answer. Nor is precluding the use of personal devices at the office. The Internet of Things and the ubiquitous nature of technology in the workplace requires HR to immerse itself in the issues raised by the CEO and CFO.

Please join Louis R. Lessig as he explains the essential ways that HR professionals should approach cybersecurity issues to provide a stronger level of confidence from the C-Suite in the activities of the organization as a whole.
