For Increasing Numbers of Employers, Departing Employee Investigations Are Standard Operating Procedure
Our forensics team has built its reputation on departing employee investigations, or the investigation of internally misappropriated proprietary information. Theft of information by employees has been on the rise for years. Online publication Entrepreneur reports that 2016 cyber security studies by leading experts found that 85 % of employees answered affirmatively when asked if they had taken company information. Information misappropriated by employees includes strategy documents, customer data and price lists, patent filings and source codes. Think of all the information in your company that an employee might regard as currency. Do you store credit card information? What about medical records? How secure are your company’s financial records? Our investigative work in this field is a source of pride for us, and we are thrilled to be recognized by CCBJ.
