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.
