    CPE Credit: 1.5

    Level: Overview

    Recommended Prerequisite: None

    Field of Study: Specialized Knowledge

    When an employee leaves, you understand that you will lose that person’s experience and institutional knowledge. But what if they take more than that? A whopping 87% of employees who leave a job take data with them that they created on the job, and 28% take data created by others in the company — including corporate presentations, strategy documents and intellectual property. That’s a lot of data leaving the company, and most people take it with the intent to share it, sometimes with a competitor or to start a competing business. So how can a company stop exiting employees with sticky hands? This session will share best practices not only to seek out these culprits after they’ve left, but also to prevent the information from leaving in the first place.

    You Will Learn How To:

    • Recognize evidence of data theft by exiting employees
    • Identify methods to prevent data theft
    • Compare procedures for processing a departing employee's devices, including preserving data from: cloud platforms, MS Office and other computer software, chat applications, email, games, operating systems, social media networks, online activity, deleted files, and more
