Welcome to this months newsletter, where I want to highlight the reputational and financial risk of employees stealing your data.
Whilst rarely investigated as a criminal offence the impact can be huge on a business as both Morisons and Bupa learnt to their cost from a compliance perspective let alone the long term losses. What about the risk when an employee steals your data to set up their own business or to move to a competitor with your valuable spreadsheets of information, breaching their post termination agreement and employment contract?
These are real threats. They can be prevented, disrupted and as you will learn be equally detected allowing for a civil case to be launched against the employee. I hope you enjoy the newsletter.

David is a very knowledgeable and engaging speaker. His presentation was very informative and alerted us to risks and issues that are not discussed enough at board level.

In the UK, unlawfully obtaining or accessing personal data without the consent of the data controller is a criminal offence under section 55 of the Data Protection Act 1998. Sadly, this doesnt stop employees stealing data and the consequences are so severe it can lead to dismissal and in some cases prison sentences. Whether you are a small, medium or large business, companies must be more vigilant as they dont think about the impact of employees stealing their data for either personal or third-party use.

Book Your First Webinar
In this first of four 30 min webinars, I will look at the driving factors which change a good law abiding citizen into a dishonest employee who will steal, commit fraud and be dishonest. This webinar will follow some academic theories fused with my own 29 years experience in investigating dishonest employees as I review 4 case studies on live events of theft and fraud. I will focus your mind of the greater vulnerability of the risk with new and different Covid (post) working practises.
My process is a tried and tested way to tackle dishonest employees, and even prevent them from happening in the first place. Trust me when I say you cannot afford the damage that dishonest employees will do to your business.
