Don’t expect a unified standard to secure employee IDs until after the ‘Cyber 9/11′

My cyber-breach article recently published in Cyber Defense Magazine, April 2015. I’ve written before about the “Cyber 9/11″ that I (and many colleagues) believe is on the horizon. The Sony breach of 2014 is the next domino to fall leading up to that event. Most know this breach as scandalous email exchanges between executives about their feelings for high-profile actors.

The real story here is the lack of process in place across a wide range of HR departments for securing employee data during the onboarding process. More about this in this article can be found here . I welcome any HR professionals’ comments, good or bad, to this article. Several attempts to reach SHRM for their perspective went unanswered. SHRM, now is your chance to chime in. less
