Answer preview

Information breach is a significant threat to the use of the HRIS system in organizations. Information breaches can be committed by third parties, employees, or other authorized users (Valcik, Sabharwal, & Benavides, 2021). Third-party breach risks exposing sensitive employee information to unauthorized persons. This negatively affects the individuals involved and the organization as its customers, and other employees may lose trust in the organization. Employees or managers with a level of clearance may also breach security privacy due to leaks. To avoid information breaches among employees and managers, the organization must create security policies to provide guidelines if the employees leak confidential information (Kavanagh & Johnson, 2020). This will discourage those with clearance status from engaging in fraudulent activities in the HRIS system. In case of an information breach by third parties, the organization should develop strong passwords and conduct regular security checks by updating the system.
