Data security for human capital

Protecting your human capital data with everything we have

Your data means everything. It’s the information, insight and intelligence that makes your people and business work. That’s why Alight works so hard to keep it protected.

Security first. And last.

Alight is committed to protecting your human capital data and fighting fraud, every day. We focus on making sure our robust data security measures meet and exceed industry best practices. And we’re constantly adapting, innovating and investing in new security measures to stay ahead of the latest threats.

Your data, and your employees’ data, is always in protective hands with Alight.

Here’s the Challenge

The threat is real

Data security for human capital is more important than ever. Unauthorized access can cause financial loss, negative brand perception and damage client confidence.

Here’s how we solve it

We’re serious about security

An intelligent layered security model, multi-factor authentication, real-time fraud detection capabilities and security alerts, give us the power to protect your data like it was our own.


Alight requires multi-factor authentication for all online transactions, including optional biometric authentications (fingerprint/face ID) to keep your data safe. Security alerts, account lock and bank verification keep it that way.


Our expert data analytics and AI fraud team collects critical data on customer interactions and predicts results based on trends to help us understand and mitigate risk.


Our fraud detection program identifies and prevents fraud faster by tracking high-risk behavior patterns and monitoring for activities indicating fraud.


Our highly experienced fraud-focused customer care team is specially trained to act fast with the right response and manage high-pressure situations with poise.

Did you know?

The Alight Protection Program reimburses for losses due to unauthorized activity when clients agree to implement our recommended security controls and take steps to help us protect their accounts. (Not applicable to all retirement accounts.)
