Employees are an organization's greatest asset and greatest risk. With a single click an employee can devastate a business by transferring or damaging huge amounts of data. Finding the balance between trust and scrutiny/control represents a tremendous challenge and a huge opportunity if executed correctly. Most organizations use intense pre-hire screening and background checks to ensure they are bringing in valuable talent that will benefit the organization without the propensity to do harm. Once the employee is hired they are given the "keys to the castle" to do great things for their new employer...or they could cause great damage.

During this webinar we will discuss:

  • Determining risk levels for job positions during the pre-hire process
  • Granting access and permissions based on job roles

You've screened your candidate, hired them into the position, assigned them resources and granted them access...now what? Hope they don't rob you blind? Trust them completely? The real job has just begun, now you have to:

  • Translate risk levels into appropriate levels of scrutiny, the greater the access, the greater the need for review
  • Implement an ethical and legal approach to people security and protective monitoring

SpectorSoft will present a practical approach to mitigating employee risk from hires to fires. Attend this webinar if you answer 'No' to the following question: Do you believe that, once a position is filled, the company should simply trust that the person in the position will not exceed or misuse that access in a way that could harm the company?
