How safe is the data in a HR system?

Keeping an HR system safe is crucial, but how safe can they be? The honest answer to this question is that it will depend on the system you chose to use as each system is different and has its own security settings and features to maximise security and prevent a data breach in the event of an attempted hacking.

First and foremost, if you use a HR system then one of the things it will do is to reduce, if not totally eliminate, the need for hard copy, paper records and that instantly increases data security. You no longer have documents left lying around in open view on desks, or stored in filing cabinets that someone always forgets to lock at the end of the day.

In HRX there are different levels of access and so users can only see what they absolutely need to. Our super savvy HRXperts understand that protecting the data or you and your employees is hugely important and we take our responsibility to look after this data seriously, that’s why HRX was built with security at the forefront of our minds.

We don’t want to bamboozle you with tech speak but HRX stores data in an encrypted format using Transport Layer Security which means that in the event of the system being hacked all of the data is encrypted and illegible which renders it useless to the hacker. In addition, HRX is hosted in an Amazon Web Service (AWS) estate with a firewall and we run regular external penetration tests (where someone tries to hack it) to ensure that your data stays safe. If the unlikely event that you trial or use HRX and decide that it’s not for you then we’ll keep your data for 30 days in case you change your mind. Once those 30 days are up, we then securely destroy your data.

All in all, we’ve made HRX as secure as we can. HRX adheres to strict GDPR guidelines so that you have peace of mind when it comes to trusting us with your data.
