Five Things You Must Do to Keep Control of Critical Data
Losing a key employee is never easy – they often take with them institutional knowledge, great internal and external relationships, not to mention critical skill sets. Some even may leave behind a leadership vacuum or rupture a team’s cohesion. All this is enough of a challenge, but if they take confidential information with them, it becomes a more pressing challenge. Organizations today rely heavily upon technology and electronically stored information (ESI) – and when employees leave, there’s always a risk that they’ll take some information or data with them when they go – either inadvertently or even on purpose.
Because this can represent significant risks to organizations in terms of data security – representing risks from data privacy and security to intellectual property and competitive positioning – it’s important for legal and compliance teams to both identify potential risks associated with departing employees, and to adopt and implement policies and procedures to safeguard valuable information.
