As employees move on from one organization to the next, and as data assets have become more mobile, the chances of data theft have become especially high. Often these thefts do not come to light until months after an employee has left. In the interim, as a normal course of doing business, artifacts are often destroyed that could have been pertinent to the matter.
This can frustrate chances for a favorable outcome in discovering the damage done, recovery or containment of the lost material, or in determining the amount of legal exposure to the parties.
Fortunately, LOGICFORCE has identified this problem and has a cost effective and easy-to-apply solution. As part of LOGICFORCE’s employee departure services, we will work with law firms or clients directly to develop and implement a departure preservation protocol for companies to follow. These protocols are usually reserved for high-level and strategic positions where the chances of critical data theft are highest.
LOGICFORCE can remotely execute the preservation process within hours, instead of days, of an employee’s departure, which allows for critical temporal data to be retained. LOGICFORCE can perform a preliminary review of the data for indications of theft or simply retain this preserved data off-site until a need for examination arises. LOGICFORCE’s Digital Forensics team can take these steps on your behalf, placing your firm in the best possible position to be successful in resolving disputes quickly, while allowing the client’s technology resources to be recycled to new employees with no adverse consequences.
