We all know that online safety is important, but we don’t often know the truly important steps we should take to ensure online safety. HR Professionals face online threats that are common to all internet users. However, there are specific threats that may be targeted specifically at them. Join us as we talk about the trends in online threats in 2017, what risks they introduce, and what you can do to ensure the safety of your employees and yourselves.

By the end of this session, participants will:
• Articulate the steps needed to be safe online
• Prioritize the importance of threats faced specifically by HR professionals
• Determine how to raise security awareness in their organizations
• Understand the dangers posed by ransomware, phishing, and scams
