What HR does - or doesn't do - can make or break your organization’s cybersecurity. However, all too often, HR is left out of the loop or leaves it all up to IT. Join us as FBI Special Agent Dr. Christopher Hecker and technology attorney Sam Sneed discuss the following: 

  • Brief overview of common cybercrimes directed towards companies
  • Case studies on how the bad guys take advantage of a lack of coordination between IT and HR;
  • Updates on the law and your risks and responsibilities under it; and
  • Practical steps you can take to start developing a collaborative cybersecurity plan with your IT.
