It’s important to be aware of cyber crime threats. Protecting your business via secure protocols will prevent you from running into cyber risk exposure. According to an article in Staffing Industry Analysts, the encryption security flaw called Heartbleed is one of the biggest vulnerability threats, specifically occurring on servers and browsers that rely on Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to encrypt private data transfers over the public Internet.
It is essential for industries to understand that risks are not limited to large companies. Research shows that companies with fewer records are more likely to be hacked because they are less likely to have durable defense systems. The cost of this could be severe, but can be prevented with Cyber Liability for Staffing Firms.
Trends that increase exposure to cyber risks include:
- Staffing industry providers accessing their social media through a web browser to retain personal information.
- Most industry records are processed and stored in cloud-based technology.
- The required transfer of protected records during mergers and acquisitions.
Prevention programs are essential to minimize risk. It’s critical for your staffing business to understand cyber crime as a credible threat and to provide protective measures accordingly. This can come in the form of training employees, clients, and candidates to limit exposure. It’s essential to find the right policy plan to protect your staffing firm from cyber crimes that come straight from your daily activities.
