Employee Data Theft

With employees having regular access to sensitive data as part of their daily role, at least basic security measures should be implemented to protect the integrity of the data. But, when an employee leaves your organisation, how can you be certain that none of your sensitive data has left with them?

Employee data theft, otherwise known as data exfiltration, happens regularly, either through naively believing that contributions belong to the employee or deliberately wanting to retain data for a future role or for other personal use. The type of data removed from the organisation will depend entirely on the intended purpose but is usually easily accessible, could save the employee time in their new role or even improve their proficiency.

Commissum’s analysts will forensically investigate any devices used by the employee to determine whether there has been an attempt to copy data and confirm that the data has since been deleted, or forensically and securely remove it from the device.
