Case Study: Exiting Employee Review

When an employee exits a company, it is essential to identify and preserve critical information he or she possessed and ensure that no sensitive data left the company with the former employee. Failing to adequately identify and retain exiting employee data can have a negative impact on many areas, including regulatory requirements, litigation holds, intellectual property rights and general corporate knowledge capital. In addition, a strong exiting employee protocol can also detect and address data breaches, intellectual property or proprietary information theft and other concerns that can arise at the time of an employee’s exit.

Case Study: Customer Data Theft

A transportation company suspected that a former manager, who had quit abruptly and opened a competing business very soon after, had stolen crucial customer data to aid in creating his new company. BIA obtained the former employee’s digital assets and performed a comprehensive investigation. The examination revealed that the former employee had used the company’s assets to set up his new competing business during work hours and had stolen the company’s entire customer database and activities, among other critical data.

Case Study: Confidential Corporate Documents Theft
A Midwest-based medical provider was defending a whistleblower retaliatory termination litigation. During the investigation, BIA provided information that assisted in defending the whistleblower claims and discovered that the employee in question had stolen confidential and protected corporate records to which the employee had no access.
Case Study: Corporate Fraud
An East Coast-based financial services institution suspected that a senior executive had submitted false expense reports. BIA provided irrefutable evidence of the executive’s substantial expense account fraud and proved that the executive routinely spent time surfing websites that were inappropriate for the workplace. Those findings led the company to dismiss the executive and void a lucrative golden parachute.
