Your Role In Data Protection and Privacy as a HR Professional

The amount of sensitive employee data that human resources professionals are responsible for is increasing:

  • Social security numbers
  • Payroll and banking information
  • Medical records
  • Background check information
  • Dates of birth
  • Employment history
  • Employee benefit plans and elections
  • Much more

You need to know the legal requirements and apply standard best practices to protect personal information. Whether disclosures happen inadvertently, through cyberattacks, or as part of a data-sharing agreement, you are ultimately responsible for employee privacy. Your organization can be liable for failing to protect data.
