Now that C-level executives face fines or even jail time for data breaches, the pressure to keep sensitive information secure is greater than ever. For project managers, that means including security as a top consideration when planning and executing a project.

If your company runs its human resources on SAP ERP Human Capital Management (SAP ERP HCM), you need a firm grasp of several HR security concepts to ensure that private data is kept private. According to Greg Robinette, executive director of ERP solutions and Mission Assurance at Lentech, Inc., failure to understand these concepts can cost your company dearly down the road.

“A lot of project managers don’t require the incorporation of security steps and roles early in the project blueprinting. They push it back as a technical exercise. That will cost more money and will usually be unsuccessful,” he says.
