Cyber Security: What HR Professionals Need to Know

01:45 pm - 02:30 pm

Speaker: Jenny Hayes, MSOD, PHR

Cyber threats are real, and it’s not only the responsibility of IT professionals to safeguard data. HR practitioners need to be aware of potential cyber threats. Business Email Compromise (BEC), in particular, is a threat to HR organizations, as scammers are pretending to be C-suite execs and ask unsuspecting HR team members for confidential employee data. At the end of the day, it’s the responsibility of the person responding to the email to be “cyber aware.”

This session won’t be highly technical, but a practical discussion to cover the recent press regarding phishing and BEC/BES. In 2016, CompTIA revealed that 45% of employees receive no cybersecurity training from their employers. We will address recent reports from the IRS as well as Google regarding phishing scams.

We will discuss 5 key areas of focus and tips to help educate your users to change their common “bad habits.” Attend this session to discover:
1) Top cyber security threats that plague companies today.
2) What is BEC/BES and how does this apply to HR practitioners?
3)Training that can be provided to help empower the HR practitioner and end user.
