Elevate HR is the largest virtual HR conference in the world. And, for the second straight year, I am thrilled to be one of the more than 50 industry leaders chosen to present.
I’ll be discussing a vitally important, yet too often overlooked, issue — Cybersecurity for HR. In this session, you will learn the most important steps you can take right now to train your employees on effective cybersecurity awareness, to place your company in the best position to protect against a costly data breach.
Join me and other industry for Elevate 2016 on November 10th. Because it’s a virtual conference, you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your desk. And the best part? It’s100% free.
