How to Maintain Confidentiality of Payroll Information in Business?

Your employees give you the most personal and important information, like their bank account number, PAN number, AADHAR number, and other information. If you can’t keep this information safe and secure, which is a critical task in a world that’s barraged with electronic information like that, then your company is going to lose quite a lot of talented employees.

In a world where identity theft and cybercrimes are at an all-time high, and probably the norm, you have a lot to lose than just talented employees; you have their trust and your image to lose.
