The CEO of a leading cyber security firm says HR professionals stand to benefit from being a bit unorthodox.

    Before you start using HR to "catch" those who fall prey to a "phishing" expedition, think about the loss of trust such an email causes. For many employees they will simply avoid reading emails from HR, restricting communication to staff.

    While it's a huge problem and worthy of finding solutions, actually "phishing" your employees has negative results for HR. My last company's IT group did it and were very happy to have "caught" a lot of employees, sentencing them to retake the anti-phishing course. I was not happy with the reception I received from those employees who thought HR was in on catching them.
