Data theft by laid-off workers
Of about 950 people who said they had lost or left their jobs during the last 12 months, nearly 60 percent admitted to taking confidential company information with them, including customer contact lists and other data that could potentially end up in the hands of a competitor for the employee's next job stint.
One of the most common ways to make off with data? USB Drives.
A simple solution:
A) Use port control to allow only company-authorized USB drives on your network.
B) Centrally manage your USB devices so that drives can be remotely disabled or deleted when an employee is terminated.
