A recent article in CFO.com highlighted the damage that a disgruntled employee can cause after termination by a company. (Here is the link: http://tiny.cc/ptbcbw). As a CFO at various companies, we developed detailed protocols to try and avoid or mitigate this potential for damage. When possible we started before the employee was terminated by looking into outplacement options so that we could present the employee with resources at the time of termination. We also developed checklists of equipment and resources used by the employee so that we knew upfront what needed to be protected or collected from the employee. Now however, with more information moving from servers to Cloud applications and the storage capacity of smartphones and other devices increasing dramatically, I am concerned about keeping up with all the potential “holes in the dike”. I am interested in hearing how others are coping with preventing confidential data from leaving with the employee.
