Securing Sensitive HR Information in the Enterprise
Having a secure solution to manage and protect sensitive HR data is critical to reducing the risk associated with the exchange of confidential information.

We all know that the human resources department plays a critical role within an organization. They are responsible for the organization’s ability to meet business needs through cultivating the company’s most valuable assets — its people. And nearly every HR process that requires collaboration involves storing and sharing highly confidential information about the company and its employees.
Employees entrust HR with their most personal and private information — such as salary, bank account information, social security numbers, and copies of sensitive documents such as passports and working visas, just to name a few. If this information was accidentally exposed to outside parties, the consequences could be detrimental — both for the organization and its staff. Employees left exposed and vulnerable could fall victim to identity theft, hacking, and credit card fraud.
Any HR team needs to make sure they are doing everything in their power to protect the organization’s employees and sensitive data. Needless to say, HR has a very important job at hand.
Having a secure solution to manage and protect all of this sensitive data is an absolute necessity to help HR teams reduce the risk associated with the exchange of confidential information between internal teams and external parties such as legal counsel and regulatory agencies. Ultimately, HR teams should have the ability to easily manage its employees’ private information across their extended teams. By having a secure, controlled, and auditable cloud-based repository, HR staff can have peace of mind that they are doing everything in their power to protect their companies most valuable assets at all times — the people.
