The nature and degree of data needed employee data for successful and effective worksite wellness programs is a discussion that needs to be had among program leaders and practitioners today. Whenever I speak to people about Risk Management these days, data protection is always one of the risks I mention, and I am increasingly concerned employee data at the number of times one or more of five popular myths pops up. These are leading a lot of otherwise good managers to fail to take some of the necessary steps to managing this risk so as to keep their employee data businesses safe.
Obviously it is important to have the right software employee data to protect your data from hackers, viruses and malware, but the Information Commissioner's Office have reported that in the last two years more than 60% of incidents reported to them did not involve any IT failure. Most breaches were caused by human error. Except for employee data those where "error" would be the wrong word, since deliberate wrongdoing was a significant element in many cases. This means it is a matter for your HR manager rather than your IT manager. 2. What IT? It is also important to recognize that most businesses hold and/or process data on lots of devices other than the employee data traditional mainframe, desktop or even laptop computers.
Most are outside the control of the head of IT employee data in the business. 3. How is data processed? Apart from the obvious data processing activities which take place in the course of business, a lot of data is passed around in various ways, intentionally or inadvertently every day. Some will be communicated verbally, either face to face or by 'phone. Some employee data will be on paper. The paperless office is not as common as we like to think, if we include everything coming off the printer and all the handwritten notes we all use. 4. Tweet Tweet! We have all noticed how often celebrities get into trouble through unwise comments on the social employee data media. We less famous people also need to be careful.
