What Employers Need To Know About Workplace Privacy

Cybersecurity and workplace privacy: Where IT and HR intersect

Did you know? Your employees are the biggest threat to your business’ data integrity and cybersecurity.

While there is no single, comprehensive federal law regulating privacy, that doesn’t mean that it’s something employers can ignore. Whether you’re dealing with customer information or employee information, there are many laws and regulations regulating virtually every type of data a company might collect (contact information, financial information, health information, etc.), and it’s an employer’s job to make sure that it complies with them all.

In this presentation, Dave Berndt, one of G&A Partners’ expert Client Advocates and an experienced corporate attorney, explores many issues related to cybersecurity and workplace privacy, as well as the strongest link between the two: employees.

  • The various laws regulating privacy, data breaches, cybersecurity and workplace privacy
  • Facts and figures relating to business cybersecurity
  • Employee rights vs. employer rights when it comes to expectations of privacy in the workplace
  • The different types of employee monitoring – camera, email, internet usage, physical searches, etc.
  • Company policies employers can put in place to ensure data security and compliance with applicable labor laws and regulations
