Top Cybersecurity Practices HR Professionals Must Champion

Back to Blog

How HR can contribute to an organization’s effective cyber-defense.

Last year, a record 1,862 data breaches occurred, potentially revealing the personal information of millions of Americans. Unfortunately, common vulnerabilities, such as weak passwords, inadvertently downloaded malware, and phishing scams have one thing in common—human error can invite bad actors into our companies where they exploit IT assets and steal sensitive data.

Human Resources departments have a critical role to play in enhancing an organization’s cyber-protection. From employee onboarding to regular updates and retraining, structures HR puts in place can help harden the company’s defenses and safeguard sensitive information, including employee and customer data. The policies and procedures you shepherd matter, too.

That’s great to hear but most HR professionals aren’t steeped in cybersecurity. If you’re not a cybersecurity geek, how can you review, critique, and upgrade your organization’s stance?
