Over the past several years, there has been a flurry of legislative actions put in place around the globe to protect the privacy of individuals’ data. This has created complexity for companies that are trying to understand it all and do the work that’s necessary to comply with the various rules. HR plays a critical role in spreading the gospel of data privacy. First, of course, HR is a repository for private employee information. It also needs to coordinate training for all employees, so they understand what information requires protection and how to recognize ways in which malicious actors use social engineering to gain access to it.
