HR Role in Information Security
Do your employees understand the importance of information security? What does your company do to relay information between your IT staff and other employees?
Employees should understand their responsibility for information security because they have access to confidential company data and resources. HR can play a vital role in ensuring security effectiveness within an organization by acting as an intermediary between the IT department and the staff. It is the role of HR to inform, set expectations, and clarify policy regarding information security, starting at the recruitment process and continuing throughout the employee’s time at the company. HR considers whether the company is maintaining well-documented policies and best practices, adhering to legal regulations, informing staff on procedures for reporting a data breach, and more.
