Details: In the past, employers primarily had to worry about data being stole by employees carrying out hard copies in boxes. As time progressed, new concerns involved information being downloaded to storage devices or emailed to sources outside the company. But now data is being taken by outside sources using cyber methods that are both simple (but sneaky) and extremely complex. One popular method used to acquire employee data is known as spear-phishing. Spear-phishing often occurs in January and February as employers are delivering W-2s and is executed by someone sending an email to human resources from an executive that appears to be genuine. The email asks for a life with all company W-2s, the company W-3 and related payroll information. The unsuspecting human resource employee replies to the email with the W-2s attached, which is delivered to the unknown sender. The law in this area is usually antiquated but is and will continue to change.


In this workshop, we will review the laws that require protection of data, methods of illegal data acquisition, ways to prevent breaches and necessary responses to the breachers. Topics to be addressed include: Laws regulating data protection, Methods used to improperly obtain company data, Ways to protect all company data and Response to and mitigation of data breachers.
