The staffing industry is incredibly lucrative right now and its popularity is only likely to increase. In 2011, it was estimated this industry posted revenues in excess of $125 billion dollars. Unfortunately, that incredible success also makes the staffing industry a target for computer hacking. Here are few ways in which staffing agencies are vulnerable to these attacks and also some examples of how staffing agency insurance can help keep your information safer.
Why Are Staffing Agencies Targeted?
Staffing agencies have access to confidential personal information and financial records for all their employees, the people they send out to businesses and often the businesses themselves. This becomes even more likely when agencies are working with high-ranking executives and large corporations.
What Are Common Methods of Computer Hacking?
While each scenario is different, there are a few common methods that computer hackers use to infiltrate into confidential systems. Some of them include:
- Compromising Computer Firewalls
- File Encryption/Extortion
These methods all can cause costly delays and frustrating extra work for you.
How Can Staffing Agency Insurance Help You With Computer Hacking?
Hopefully, none of these situations ever occur to your agency. However, in the event that computer hacking did occur, insurance firms can provide you with support and resources to fix your affected technology quickly and easily. This ensures you are back up and running as soon as possible for your clients and your business.
