Can Your HCM Provider Protect Your Data?
Why Data Security Is Important
As an HR manager, your employees trust you
to keep their information safe. But do you have the same level of faith in your HCM provider? HR databases are the ideal target for hackers. They contain the critical information hackers prey on including: Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, check stubs, and family information.
With hackers collecting more information by the day, does your HCM provider have the right defenses in place to protect your data? Does Your Provider Utilize These Security Measures to Keep Your Data Safe?
Now’s the time to ask tough questions about how they’re keeping your employee’s information secure.
Multi Factor Authentication
This safeguard helps to eliminate employees from recycling the same password on multiple platforms. To access the database, users are required to enter their username and password and complete a variety of authentication requirements like email,
text message, phone call, or biometric identification.
Dedicated Risk Assessment Team
Cybersecurity threats are constantly evolving and becoming more complex. It takes a dedicated team to implement and test new security protocols and prevent secure data from falling into the wrong hands.
Google Authenticator provides users with
a randomized six-digit code that must be retrieved and entered to access information. Increased authentication eliminates the risk of an email or phone number that has been compromised from phishing or hacking.
Company Controlled Laptops
Do you know if your provider allows employees to use their own device or laptop to access your information? Requiring employees to use secure, encrypted, company controlled laptops ensures your data is protected from hackers.
Transferring sensitive data across platforms can pose great risk. Most companies and HCM providers encrypt their data in transit to make it useless to hackers, but your sensitive data could still be compromised while idle. Ensure that your HCM provider has database level encryption to protect your information.
