To Be Re-Scheduled, Our 'Wake-Up': 'IT & the Human Resource Professional'


Our Wake-Up to Manufacturing Morning Session

‘IT Security and the Human Resource Professional’ 

(HRCI credit for 1 hour for re-certification, has now been approved for this event!)

Presented by: 
Marc G. Tarlow, Esq., and Michael Rowan, Esq. – Shumaker Williams, PC
and also
Alan Estes, Director of Business Development - GDC, LLC 

Every day there are reports in the business news of IT Security problems experienced by even the most sophisticated of enterprises.  

The law firm of Shumaker Williams, PC and IT provider and consultant GDC, LLC will jointly present a program designed to provide HR professionals with the basic IT security concepts and issues to improve your ability to communicate with IT professionals and design and implement personnel policies and procedures designed to minimize IT risk.   

These threats include:
1. Ransomware 

2. Other malicious malware which can do damage or shut down your systems; increasingly this can affect not only your office platform but the software running your factory floor, and even “simple” devices connected to the Internet 

3.Theft or destruction of proprietary, confidential and personal data  

As HR professionals, we all need to learn new concepts and a new language in order to interface with IT professionals who are tasked with providing IT security to our companies. 

With these new threats also come legal questions (many unanswered by the courts), and insurance questions.

He has appeared before the NRLB, EEOC and corresponding state and local commissions, as well as federal court and has served as lead counsel in many complex labor arbitrations concerning contract interpretation (often with significant employer exposure and complexity) and employee discipline. Mr. Tarlow has provided advice and litigated common law employment issues such as non-competition/trade secret issues, wrongful discharge, interference with contractual relations, drug testing, privacy, employee handbooks and employment contracts.
