The cyber threat landscape is ubiquitous and changing more than ever. From 2016 to 2017, the number of breaches nearly doubled. While these threats make it challenging for businesses to secure HR data, storing data in the cloud can help mitigate some of this risk. Contrary to what you may think, it’s secure and more efficient to store data with a SaaS provider. SaaS solutions allow you more functionality, advanced technology and faster updates than on-premise or home grown solutions. However, because they are online they do pose some risk. Providers acknowledge this and most continuously improve their security metrics and heavily invest in keeping your data safe—their business model depends on it.
