The average Human Resources (HR) team is sitting on a data gold mine, that means as extremely important in Human Resource such as recruitment data, career progression data, training data, absenteeism figures, productivity data, paymet data, and many more. With so many important data, storing it in file cabinet or local storage is not the best cosidering so many potential threats to your employee personal information. Disaster, losing data due to hard drive failure, viruses or mailware and other issues that may come to you. This the main reason why Digital Data Security is very important.
Data Security Must be a Top Priority of HR
For any organisation, there is one word that must be top of mind: Security. Especially when employees and proprietary business data begin to mix. For example, when companies hire workers, in the process to effectively carrying out duties and meeting up expectations, they will use company device instead of personal device. So company must record detailed information from recruitment to device that being assigned.
Based on The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), company should protect the data of their employee. This means company must reduce the possibility of human errors that lead to data breaches.
Research says that security breaches are mostly from employee. For example, leaving unlocked a door that should be shut can turn out to be a costly mistake because it concerns the security of personal data. Then leaving the computer unlocked with documents on display is another accidental that can cause data breaches.
