Implement Strong HR and Payroll System to Keep Employee Data Highly Secure and Confidential

With the rise of cloud-based HR Payroll solutions that allow users to log in from any device, security concerns are also on the rise.  The addition of unknown IP address access can make systems susceptible to outside hackers as well as devious and computer savvy employees.  Information breaches and identity theft from the inside is also a concern that should be addressed.

Employers should work closely with vendors and managers to make sure that security is maintained throughout HR and Payroll System implementation phases and as the system become more regularly used.

Some of the Measures to be taken are:

1. Checking Vendor Security Measures

The security measures that a vendor takes to ensure that a company’s data are secure should be understood before the company makes a final HR and Payroll System selection. HR and Payroll system vendors all take precautions to keep company data safe, but the quality of the security measures that are in place may vary.

2. Limiting Access to Information

During the implementation, employers and managers must be careful about setting the system up to limit and control access to information.  Employees should only have access to their own personal information and all changes made by employees using the system should require authorization.

3. Frequent Password Changes

Most HR and Payroll Systems can be configured to require a password change every so often, usually once every 60 days.  While managers and employees may complain about this measure, it can help to provide an extra layer of security that protects sensitive information from both internal and external threats.

4. Having a Disaster Recovery Plan

Being proactive about keeping HR information safe can mitigate security threats, but it is important to understand that breaches can still occur.  Having a disaster recovery plan in place will minimize the amount of time that your system is down and help to re-secure your data faster.

5. Having a Strong Audit Trail

Many solutions may offer you solutions which may look great, however have you thought about, the back-end architecture, can the solution actually pinpoint, who accessed the system at what time from which machine or IP address, what was done by that user.  Many system may make tall claims, in reality they may not work as expected, ensure the solution you choose has strong audit trail for each transaction you may perform, because in times of fraud investigation or other criminal acts, it becomes a key ingredient, to safeguard your interest as an organisation and the to prove by concrete evidence, by using the audit trail.

6. Are your passwords visible as text in the Database

If your passwords are visible as free text in the database table, then chances are your IT admin can take your full control of your HR Department, Access payroll information and more.  Ensure to ask the  vendor how is security managed within the Database where information is stored, passwords should be encrypted and the encryption key should not be stored anywhere on the client or server for access.
