How HR can Mitigate Cyber Risks – Panel Discussion

Human Resources departments are in a coveted position to help protect an organization from cyber risks.  However, there are a lot of questions to be answered. 

HR intersects and influences a number of different areas related to and supporting cybersecurity.  A cybersecurity panel, including Matthew Rosenquist from Intel, discussed some of the challenges and opportunities at an EvoNexus HR Special Interest Group open forum in San Diego CA, September 2015.
