3:55 PM Be Your Employee's Hero. Learn How HR can Play a Leading Role in Protecting Employee Data Security and Privacy by Adopting Disruptive Trustless Technology.

This session will expose the cavalier approach that data aggregators and outsourcers of employment verification take in reselling employee information and irreparably damaging your employees’ lives and negatively affecting your Company’s Brand. You will learn the hard facts surrounding;

• The risks that exist and can potentially impact all companies that participate in utilizing this type of service.
• The lack of institutional challenge and the potential monopoly that attributes to 75% of this activity.
• The highest penalized contributor to irresponsible practices as identified by the FTC complaints.
• Employee protection options that you can offer to your current and past employee base as an alternative.
• How this alternative provides an impenetrable opportunity to protect personal data.
• How this current cost center can become a value add, a corporate responsibility enhancement and a risk mitigation initiative.
• How you as a corporate leader can leverage disruptive technology and become an ambassador for employee data protection.

Our objective will be to show you how you can empower your employees to take control of their own privacy and address the irresponsible and scrupulous behavior of existing service providers. We will help you eliminate the possibility of your employee data being sold to third parties and help you become a champion for employee protection.
