No company is impervious to the threats posed by cyber liability. A factor that compounds this issue is the fact that identifying the threats and weak links within an organization that let the threats creep in could take longer usually a few days or weeks, while penetrating an organization can take as little as some minutes.
Some of the people in companies that are in the best position to help other employees prevent cyber liability are human resources managers. However, human resources managers need a wider and better understanding on the types of cyber threats and how various personnel within the organization can help to prevent them.
HR managers can also provide ongoing support and advice to other staff members on cyber liability topics. This could include advice on how to spot suspicious activities, best practices to stay secure online, and recognizing the signs of a potential cyber attack.
Additionally, HR managers can lead the organization in implementing security policies, such as password and access control measures, and ensuring that employees are aware of the importance of following these policies. By educating staff on cyber security, HR managers can help to reduce the risk of cyber attacks and the associated liabilities.
Human resource personnel are also tasked with the responsibility to evaluate potential candidates for positions within organizations, hire qualified applicants, and often develop company policies dealing with cyber liability concerns. The RCLS™ Cyber Liability Training for Human Resource Managers provides an effective background enabling HR administrators to make informed decisions.
The training also provides human resource officers with the necessary knowledge to ensure their organization is secure from cyber liability, by making sure they stay up–to–date on the latest cyber security legislation and trends. This way, they can ensure the organization is compliant with the relevant regulations and that the organization is in line with the industry’s best practices.
