Glen Ellyn, IL – March 17, 2016 –Tom LaMantia, Managing Director at Magenium Solutions recently spoke at the Management Association’s 2016 HR Conference and Annual Meeting in Oak Brook, IL. Mr. LaMantia presented, “IT for HR: How Does IT Help You Manage Your HR Processes” by addressing the many challenges, mainly security and privacy, facing today’s Human Resource Professional.
Today, security and privacy are no longer just IT issues. With candor, humor, and poignant examples, Mr. LaMantia’s presentation covered what the many high-profile security breaches have recently taught us, and how the implications of a security incident can reach far beyond the costs to eliminate the problem. “These issues can damage the trust you have earned from your customers, with your employees, irreparably harm your companies brand image, and negatively impact your business,” said LaMantia. “Further, organizations which lack a comprehensive security strategy are at risk of losing critical intellectual property that keeps them competitive in the market.”
Attendees learned how as new workplace initiatives like Cloud, SAAS, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and ‘work from anywhere’ gain popularity, enterprises must take extra steps to ensure their data is protected. Instilling a commitment to security throughout a business can be challenging in today’s digital era. These technological advancements bring a host of new security concerns along with them. “Modern business leaders need to understand that fostering a culture of security and privacy needs to be a primary focus across the enterprise and a top business level concern and HR can and does play a critical role in establishing this culture.”
In the world of the empowered consumer, trust and loyalty can easily be lost, especially when the privacy of customer data is threatened. When a company experiences a data breach, the business value gained from your digital transformation journey can instantly be diminished. As a result, reputations can suffer – leading to loss of customer trust and loyalty. Cyberattacks and security breaches can also result in the loss of market share and profits and have long term effects beyond the legal liabilities and job losses that accompany major security incidents.
“Your technology partner should help you develop and support an end-to-end vision for security and privacy – they must be committed to protecting you and your customers while continually innovating and leading the industry in the latest development in cyber security” said Mr. LaMantia. “Simply stated IT should help you manage your activities and processes by providing automation and security that works.”
