Cyber threats in the staffing industry
from The Staffing Stream
As the U.S. workforce changes, a growing number of companies are turning toward the staffing industry to meet their needs. Since the recession ended, the number of temporary workers has increased by more than 50 percent, especially in positions traditionally seen as “white collar.” As the use of temporary workers increases – particularly in positions that require temporary workers to have access to and work with sensitive data – the risk of a breach in a company’s network or sensitive data heightens. In addition, staffing agencies could face increased exposure to potential third party litigation if their workers cause such breaches.
