Regional employers and human resource professionals were in attendance.
Daniel Costantino, from ITDATA, highlighted the benefits organizations will receive from implementing risk management and incident response plans. He also spoke about the importance of following proper due diligence and due care from a security perspective. “Performing due diligence is not enough. Knowing about risks and not developing a plan to address them will leave an organization open to litigation in the event of a breach”, said Dan Costantino, Director of Security.  Panelists from White and Williams offered insight and expertise regarding employment law and privacy issues, such as:

  • Employment agreements should be tailored to the situation. There is no standard document that should be used.
  • Use the Interactive Process when considering reasonable accommodations. Analyze job functions and the employee’s limitations.
