Data Theft And Your Ex’s

July 2, 2009

A fairly scary eWeek revelation regarding theft of corporate data with a Symantec sponsored survey, performed by the Ponemon Institute.

The piece that I wanted to reference in this blog is this one (empasis mine);

Equally troubling from an IT security perspective is that almost a quarter of the participants had the ability to access data even after they left the company, with 32 percent of these respondents admitting they accessed the system and their credentials worked.

That survey identified that almost 60% of individuals kept corporate data after leaving.

You can definitely make sure that they don’t keep it because they are still accessing your systems after they are gone.
