Critically Important Cybersecurity and Data Protection Strategies for Higher Ed HR Pros

IT professionals aren’t the only higher ed pros that need to know about data privacy and information security practices. Due to the sensitive nature of many HR activities, HR pros have a special need to understand and apply data privacy and security safeguards. This session will define data privacy and data security concepts, outline some legal requirements for safeguarding data (including a brief review of the European Union General Data Privacy Regulation), and offer practical data handling tips that you can employ immediately.
