Litchfield Comments on Security Breaches Exposing Employee Data

20 November 2018 The Washington Post News
Senior Counsel John Litchfield was quoted in a Washington Post article, "You've come to expect your data is at risk when you shop. Don't forget about when you're at work," about security breaches resulting in the exposure of employees' personal data.

Litchfield said many employers are training workers to spot phishing emails by planting fakes, with some even running contests to see which corporate teams can avoid clicking on them the most and awarding the winning groups prizes such as extra paid time off. "I think the weakest link [for employee data] is these phishing scams, which are becoming much more sophisticated," he said. "It's harder and harder for people to recognize them."
