Most Workers Trust that Employers
Protect Personal Info
Eighty-eight percent of employees are confident their
company protects their personal information from identity theft, according to a
survey by the American Payroll Association.
The survey found that employees are confident in the
current methods used by employers to secure sensitive information such as social
security numbers, wages and salaries, and bank account numbers.
The online survey by the APA asked respondents: "How
confident are you that your employer adequately protects your vital personal
information from data breaches/identity theft?"
Nearly 40,000 of the 45,180 respondents indicated
they were either confident or very confident that their employer adequately
protects their personal information.
The "survey was held in conjunction with APA's annual
public awareness campaign, National Payroll Week (NPW), held annually the week
of Labor Day.
