Data Security Best Practices in a Connected World

How confident are you in the security of your data?  Whether you are handling employee and human resources data in house or working with an outside platform or some combination of both, security and confidentiality are of utmost importance. Trusting your business’s key employment and HR data to a third party, or hosting it insecurely within on-premises data stores, can be fraught with uncertainty and risk – financial, operational, compliance, and even reputational.  This is especially true if your data is not adequately secured and managed. Indeed, as there is no “undo” button when it comes to a data breach, your business and employee data must be handled with extreme care and security to reduce risk and ensure compliance with prevailing regulation and laws.  The consequences of not doing so can be severe – financial penalties and remediation measures, such as they are, can be catastrophic.  At HIREtech, the security processes, controls, procedures, and practices pertaining to client data is our top priority.  HIREtech knows that keeping client data safe and secure requires a holistic, and multi-faceted approach.
