HUMAN RESOURCE PROFESSIONAL TO LEARN ESSENTIAL DATA SECURITY CONSIDERATIONS WHEN CHOOSING AN ELECTRONIC I-9 AND E-VERIFY SOLUTION

PHOENIX, AZ, January 7, 2011- LawLogix Group, Inc., the leader in I-9 and E-Verify Compliance Software, announced today that it will host a free webinar on security essentials for human resource professionals who are considering an electronic I-9 and E-Verify system which is offered “in the cloud.” This one-hour webinar entitled,“Keeping your Head in the Cloud: Data Security and I-9 Compliance in the 21st Century”, will be held on Tuesday, January 11, 2011, from 11am EST to 12pm EST.

The year 2010 was memorable for Human Resource (HR) professionals, with record-breaking I-9 enforcement, million-dollar fines for administrative errors, and the promise of expanded E-Verify coverage for the nation’s employers. In the wake of these increasing obligations, many employers are moving to intelligent electronic I-9 and E-Verify solutions, which are deployed via a Software-as-a-Service model that is hosted in the cloud. While the advantages of cloud computing are well-founded, experts caution that the environment must adhere to the final electronic I-9 regulations which specify standards for recordkeeping, data security, and accessibility. Moreover, employers must be vigilant in choosing a solution which ensures the sanctity of their employees’ personally identifiable I-9 information.

“It is absolutely critical for organizations to carefully scrutinize their vendor’s network environment, security processes and privacy policies to ensure compliance with the I-9 regulations and applicable corporate security policies,” said Dan Siciliano, who is co-founder of LawLogix and Director of Stanford’s Rock Center for Corporate Governance. “Many newcomers to the I-9 and E-Verify market make false promises of physically walling-off private data in the cloud and lack the necessary resources and expertise to maintain a SaaS environment. There is a lot of hype and misleading information out there, and we hope this webinar will teach employers to see beyond the buzzwords and make informed decisions for their next generation I-9 and E-Verify system.”

The LawLogix free webinar will also include a discussion of the pros and cons of cloud computing, the importance of data governance, and the latest technologies being used by market leaders. Attendees will also learn about the impact of social engineering on I-9 and E-Verify processing and the top 5 security questions to ask a vendor before unleashing data to the cloud.
