Your Employee Matters


By May 1, 2010No Comments

A recent article in HR Magazine on the forensic investigation of a data thief identified a checklist of information sources that employers should consider when engaging in any type of investigation:

  1. The employee’s computer, cell phones, and other company-provided devices
  2. Parking garage access records
  3. Building surveillance footage
  4. Office access logs
  5. Office telephone logs
  6. Cellular telephone bills
  7. E-mails
  8. SIM and memory cards
  9. Any documents or witnesses

Each of these data sources can provide important, confidential, and trade secret records to an unscrupulous competitor or employee. The SHRM article offers sound advice: When your data has been breached, get professional assistance and involve a forensic investigator.
