Why a secure ATS has become more than necessary?
Advancement in technology has made access to information a lot easier. Greater access to information has also opened doors to unparalleled security threats. These threats can disrupt our information systems and bring out private information in the open. Disclosing private information causes great harm to the privacy of individuals. It also casts huge doubt on the integrity of the organization.
With numerous hacking attacks and security breaches across the globe, it is of immense importance to have a secure ATS. Organizations must take every precaution possible to minimize these threats and associated risks emanating from these attacks.
Recruitment firms are also under the microscope; having access to a large database of confidential information regarding the applicants. So, the firms have a legal, moral and ethical responsibility to ensure that recruiters do not compromise their applicants’ private information. Furthermore, a secure ATS ensures that the stored information is not compromised in any way possible. It also helps ensures that your organization’s integrity and reputation are intact. Thus, helping to build applicants trust in your brand and the services that you offer.
Recruiting agencies are increasingly looking towards implementing an Application Tracking System (ATS) in their organizations. Not only to store but also to make sense of the applicant data. Therefore, helping them shortlist the best candidates for their clients. There is a lot of focus on what features a specific ATS can offer and the subsequent value that it will bring to their organization. Yet more often than non-secure ATS in the market fail to address the needs necessary for an ATS. Either the ATS on offer by the company will have no security feature embedded in the system or have no idea of the importance the security features hold for the ATS and the organization implementing it.
