Hacks, Ransomware, and Data Privacy Breaches: Essential Steps HR Should Be Taking to Minimize Data Security Risks - On-Demand020

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Attendees will come away with tips and guidance on the best way to protect against data security risks, what to look out for, what actions to take, and how to train employees to spot sophisticated company email hacks, ransomware, and avoid data breaches.

Protecting your organization’s data is of the utmost priority, especially as the world is increasingly dependent on storing and communicating electronically. But as hackers get more and more sophisticated, employers need to know (and inform their employees) how to spot high-tech email attacks. Of course, your organization should invest in the best possible cyber security software to avoid such breaches, but sophisticated hacks may be able to get past even the most up-to-date data protection.

Some data breaches and hacks come through employee emails, and these could set loose costly and damaging ransomware. Most people are aware enough not to click on links that look “phishy,” but it can’t hurt to review the basics with your employees. Suspicious emails may appear as a reputable company or bank, with real-looking logos or websites, but with something a bit askew. For instance, the email address may end in simply “.co” rather than “.com.” Or the return address is something obviously different from the company it’s allegedly from.

Training your employees to recognize phishing emails and promptly delete (and double delete) them from the company’s system can help protect your company’s email system and avoid serious hacks. And if an employee mistakenly clicks on a link in a phony email, they must report it immediately and run antivirus software. 

Importantly, employees should be informed of proper protocol to protect company security, and they should be able to report a mistaken “click” immediately without fear of retribution. It’s more important to you and your employees to protect the systems in place and act quickly.

Find out more details about the positive steps you can take to avoid hacks, ransomware, or data breaches at work by attending our in-depth webinar with a leading expert attorney on the topic of cybersecurity and hacking in this on-demand webinar. 

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Ensure that your organization has reliable anti-hacking cybersecurity software in place
  • Train employees to recognize phishing emails and suspicious links
  • Avoid opening or clicking on suspect emails—and learn to recognize logos from reputable companies that don’t quite look right
  • Look for suspicious email addresses before opening
  • Be cautious when seemingly personalized emails come on a bit too dramatic or aggressive
  • Set well-communicated policies for employees so they know what to do if they accidently open or click on a suspicious link 
  • Understand the legal ramifications of having your organization’s email system hacked
  • Emphasize to employees that their personal data could be breached as well through ransomware or hacking
  • And much more!
