Join the Hunt Valley Business Forum on June 2nd for a presentation on forming an alliance between HR and IT departments. Jeff Bathurst of SC&H Group’s IT Advisory Services will be holding an interactive discussion on the inter-departmental dynamics between IT and HR, of current information security risks and its impact on both HR & IT and the profile of today’s technology worker. While both are a part of a “corporate services” group, many IT/HR relationships suffer from dysfunction due to a lack of understanding of technology issues, trends and information; poor process and procedures as well as communication challenges. A significant part of Information Security and the protection of a firm’s assets lie within HR. From recruitment, code of conduct, on-boarding and off-boarding to new HR systems, it is imperative for HR to understand their role in this ever-evolving dimension of corporate computing. Does HR understand its role in protection as well as the consumption of corporate assets and intellectual property?
