As if Compliance isn’t a Big Enough Headache…

The EEOC is reporting that HR departments are being targeted for bogus emails containing a Trojan Horse virus.  According to the department, the email’s subject matter features precisely the kind of wording that makes the heart of an HR Director or GC leap:

"Harassment Complaint Update For"

Pass this information on to your recruitment, HR, and legal folks.  Although most of us have virus detection software protecting us, a lot of folks don’t run such protection at home, on mobile devices, etc.  Let them know NOT to open any attachments or click on any links if they receive what appears to be an EEOC email.

Trust me, if there’s been a complaint, the EEOC won’t by shy about relaying the info to you via a legitimate email without infected attachments.
