PIHRA Antelope Valley

The Cyber Tsunami and The Role
That HR Must Play

presented by Kimberly Pease


A business or nonprofit grows by managing Financial, Operational, Sales, and Employee Turnover risks or changes in the market.

There’s a new risk that now must be managed: Cyber risk … the risk to the business or nonprofit of cybercrime, another serious cyber incident, or a cyber-lawsuit. HR plays an integral part in managing cyber risk.

Managing cyber risk isn’t just about IT. Managing cyber risk is about disciplined management throughout the organization coupled with strong executive leadership.

Take aways:

  • What You Need to Know
  • What Are Your Risks
  • What Are the Threats You Must Manage
  • Where Are You Vulnerable
  • What Do You Need to Do to Manage Cyber Risk
