Privacy & Cybersecurity: HR's Duty to Protect Data/Combat Insider Threats

Learn why it is essential for organizations to be aware of and mitigate the risks of cloud based threats. Failure to have a plan, and a team defined, in place and ready to act, puts your bottom line and your corporate values at risk and could become the single largest impediment to achieving your company's strategic goals.

National and regional experts will share personal and professional observations and case studies. They will discuss the important and evolving HR role in coordinating leadership team across the IT, risk, legal, operations and security functions in aligning policies, communications, and raising employee and leadership awareness and vigilance in protecting data and combatting the Insider Threat.
