Cyber Crisis: How to Respond to a Payroll Breach

July 23, 2019 at 2:00 PM

A key attribute of the payroll profession is the ability to secure employee and company data. Those payroll obligations are increasingly under attack as cybercriminals develop new ways to dupe the unsuspecting into giving up private information or redirecting payroll funds.

In response, employers and payroll departments must adhere to increasingly strict protocols to prevent a payroll data breach. But even as these are applied, new adaptations to schemes create a certain inevitability that payroll data, at some point, will be compromised. This webinar focuses on what happens after security plans fail, how employers react, and what’s at stake after a breach or compromise of key employee-related data.

This webinar will cover:

  • Common attributes of data breaches
  • The most egregious data breaches for payroll
  • Payroll’s involvement in data-breach protections and plans
  • Responses and remediation to cyberattacks
  • Employer recovery costs, people management, and communication

Educational Objectives:

  • Identify the most common data-breach method
  • Explain how payroll-specific breaches occur are occurring
  • Discuss attributes of employer data-protection plans
  • Recognize payroll’s role in incident-response plans
  • Spotlight key areas of post-breach employer and personal liability
