Employees as guardians of corporate security policies - a key trend in multinational employee data m
Positioning employees as individual stewards of ethics and creating cultures that support, encourage and reward attention to individual privacy, trust and respect is one of the key trends identified in a new Ceridian white paper - 'Navigating trends in multinational employee data management.' While employees can represent the single biggest security risk to an organisation, conversely they can also become a valuable asset by acting as guardians of corporate security policies. Today every multinational organisation is challenged to create, implement and sustain a responsive security governance model within its sphere of operations. The new white paper examines some of the emerging issues and trends a multinational organisation may encounter in developing a privacy management structure strong enough to withstand existing employee privacy laws and flexible enough to comply with emerging global data privacy developments. The white paper considers countries' individual responses such as the European Union Data Protection Directive 94/46/EC, the USA's Safe Harbor, and looks at potential alternatives such as model contracts, ISO 17799:2000, binding corporate rules and codes of conduct. Besides examining how employees can be assets in risk management, the white paper considers other trends including increased threat monitoring, improved technology and escalating global regulations and enforcement.
