Protecting Corporate Data When Employees Leave Your Company

How do employers ensure that departing employees don’t take important data assets with them when they leave? The answer, it turns out according to a recent study by Osterman Research, is that they don’t protect against this eventuality. Our research found that for many organizations, information governance policies, practices and technologies focused on data protection are not well implemented, if they are implemented at all. This puts these organizations at significant risk from employees who either quit or are terminated involuntarily and take with them key data assets, such as customer lists, trade secrets, financial projections, or various types of intellectual property. Download this white paper to learn more about the Osterman Research findings and to what processes and technologies can be implemented that will enable you to gain visibility and retain control over sensitive and confidential data assets, while assuring that employees are not leaving with these assets.
