With more online threats constantly appearing and targeting businesses worldwide, all data needs to be protected as much as possible. Cyber-attacks and hacks are incredibly common, and can be a severe detriment to your business if not handled efficiently and effectively. With things such as payroll and the personal data of staff being of utmost importance, you need to ensure that everything is secure. But how can this be achieved? With a professional employer organisation (PEO), security is a top priority.

Here at Payroll Worldwide, we provide employer of record (EOR) services to businesses in Latin America and those wishing to expand to the area. From providing effective, secure payroll systems to helping your staff immigrate safely and compliantly, we understand how important security is to your business. If you’re looking for a PEO to help with your security, there are a few instances to be aware of.


Protection from Data Breaches

As a business, data is a key element that needs to be protected at all costs. The personal information of your staff, bank details and client/customer information are just a few things to be aware of when looking into protective systems. It’s easy to buy into untrustworthy systems, and weak passwords can also be a detriment. PEOs will have systems in place that put data protection at the top of their priorities, using industry-standard software to ensure all private information falls in line with data protection regulations.

Here at Payroll Worldwide, we work tirelessly to ensure full protection of your business’s data and private information. Although our payroll processes are fast and compliant, they also keep all data secure and protected. No matter your budget, we can always provide exemplary services to your business, big or small.

High Standard Systems

PEOs implement top-quality systems that manage all aspects of your human resources (HR). From payroll to recruitment and onboarding, PEOs value streamlining your processes and making them more secure. If you’re a small business, payroll outsourcing is a great reason to turn to a PEO. Security will be a top priority, as well as scheduling payments to keep everything in a regime. They will also handle tax and monitor employee absences, leaving you to focus on more important aspects of your business. All of this will be completed on an industry-standard system you can trust; your data will be protected, and you can enjoy great security.

If you’re concerned, you can ask your potential PEO about their security systems and how seriously they take it. Whilst no system is 100% bulletproof, there are various steps that are taken to prevent internal and external breaches. Asking about the steps they take and their security requirements will put your mind at ease, safe in the knowledge that you are entrusting your system with qualified professionals. You can also train your own staff on how to monitor data breaches, for extra protection.


Benefits for Small Businesses

As a small business, payroll, labour law and ensuring full compliance can be a minefield. It may seem more cost-effective to handle payroll yourself as you get started out, but the issues you can experience with data breaches can be catastrophic. Also, you may have to employ a team to handle your payroll in-house, which can be costly when compared to outsourcing to a PEO. Payroll services for small businesses can be a great way to get started effectively, keeping all data safe.
