State, federal, and local laws require businesses to take reasonable steps to protect any personal information collected from customers, employees or job applicants. These laws seek to prevent the occurrence of security breaches and identity theft. Employers and employees must be able to identify the different kinds of cybersecurity threats in the workplace, and recognize what protections are availableagainst cyber attacks. Applicable federal laws include the IdentityTheft and Assumption Deterrence Act (ITADA), the Cybersecurity Act of 2015, the Health Insurance Portability and AccountabilityAct (HIPAA), the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, the CAN-SPAM Act, and the Unlawful Access to Stored Communications Act.

Failure to comply with applicable laws can result in penalties up to $10,000 per violation and/or costly lawsuits alleging negligence in failing to protect sensitive personal information. The Department of Justice has reported that in 2014, more than 34.2 million U.S. adults had experienced some type of identity theft.

In June 2015, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) released new guidance for businesses on best practices relating to cybersecurity and identity theft prevention. A comprehensive cybersecurity awareness training program is a company’s best defense to help employers and employees identify the different kinds of cybersecurity threats in the workplace, and recognize what protections are available against cyber attacks, as well as perform the responsibilities expected of them. Employers must create clear and comprehensive company policies on cybersecurity while following the FTC’s Ten-Step Approach in formulating effective cybersecurity guidelines.

Recent security breaches affecting Home Depot, Sony, AshleyMadison, and Target have been covered extensively in the media, increasing awareness on the importance of cybersecurity awarenessand prevention. According to Cyberark, there has been a 38 percent increase in cybersecurity attacks since 2014. This figure will only increase if companies are unprepared.

According to the FBI, nearly 519 million financial records of U.S. residents were stolen or compromised in 2014 by outside forces. Approximately 9 percent of those involved the theft of credit or debit card information. The Ponemon Institute reported that 6 out of 10 employees steal corporate data when they quit or are fired. In addition, 39 percent of all data theft occurs from current employees. Employers can be held liable if acourt of law finds that they were negligent in taking reasonable steps to prevent the theft or breach from occurring.
