Data Theft is one of the most important threats of our cyber world. It can take the face of anything from someone copying an article, to extracting confidential and proprietary information from a corporate environment. It can include identity theft, stealing of personal and family information, academic, scientific and even games related information.
The two most affected goods are private individuals (when the lost data is used against them or they suffer losses) and businesses.
Identifying data theft in your business is paramount. It is the first step in identifying your system's vulnerabilities, the disloyal employees, and the risks you are exposed to. It is important that you evaluate the size of your losses, and be able to respond to the threats this compromise has exposed you to.
Examples of data theft cases we have worked in, include several recruitment agencies (that usually have a large turnaround of staff), marketing and graphic design businesses (where staff leaving is accessing confidential information and remove intellectual work that belongs to the business). We have also worked with manufacturers and construction businesses who experienced similar problems with disloyal employees.
