Personally identifiable information (PII) for sensitive data

Human Resources In The Crosshairs


HR departments have loads data, like:

  • I-9 documents
  • Names and addresses
  • Insurance
  • Payroll
  • Social security numbers
  • Medical data

Here are 8 things HR Managers must do now:

  • Use complex passwords with phrases, numbers, digits, and symbols of at least 20 characters in length.
  • So personnel does not have to memorize passwords, use a Password Manager
  • Add multi-factor authentication as an extra layer of protection.
  • Ensure your systems are up to date.
  • Never operate using an Admin Account. If you’re breached, a hacker will have access to everything.
  • Store documents only on company servers.
  • Establish a Security Awareness Program for all employees. Humans are the weakest link —one errant click can bring down the entire network.
  • Use a Business Continuity solution to protect your information.

Stay safe.
