In 2017, hundreds of employers unwittingly disclosed their employees' sensitive information to identity thieves. This year that number is projected to increase. In nearly every incident, thieves targeted Human Resources and Finance professionals to facilitate their crimes. In today's digital and fast-paced age, it's imperative that Human Resources and Finance professionals stay vigilant against the threat of identity theft. This presentation will delve into current and evolving methods of identity thieves, strategies for how to prevent and react to incidents, and resources for continued education on proactive practices.
