HR Role in Data Security Increasing

While businesses often leave data security to their IT departments, HR is becoming more involved, according to attorney Daniel Schwartz, a partner at Shipman and Goodwin.

Schwartz outlined a number of steps to help companies prevent data theft. In addition to training programs, he recommends an audit to determine data breaches.

"Perform an audit to figure out where data leakages are coming from, focusing on both electronic information and personnel files that are in paper format. Also hiring a third party to find “holes” in the system."
