In today’s digital world, the problem of data theft by departing employees goes far beyond stealing the names of a few customers or a product design sketch; it can mean the loss of gigabytes of critical corporate intelligence and legally protected information like customer cardholder data. Plus, ex-employees have even more avenues for using the data they steal — they can use it against their former employers, leak it to competitors, sell it to the highest bidder or simply publish it on the internet.
