Why Should You Attend
Confidential information includes internal secrets, customer, and employee information, and much more. HR is tasked with creating policies, procedures, and practices to help maintain the confidentiality of this important information. Many times HR doesn’t understand the full breadth of this challenge, and how they can be helpful.
The breach of an obligation to protect this information can lead to lawsuits, fines, business failure, and brand damage.
We are in an information economy and much of that information is confidential in nature. HR has an important role in protecting it.
