Empire Intel: 69.6% of business professionals have stolen some form of corporate IP from their employer when leaving a job. 32.6% of employees leaving a job took sales proposals and/or presentations with them. 30.4% admitted to taking information such as customer databases and contact information. The most commonly used method for stealing IP is to send electronic copies of documents and files to a personal email account.
– U.S. Department of JusticeEmpire's Tip: Failure to encrypt email communication can also provide opportunity for would-be IP thieves. Messages to trusted partners, customers or any other recipients outside the network can be intercepted and read by anyone with rudimentary knowledge of email systems. Encrypting these conversations ensures that nobody but the sender and recipient have the ability to read the messages contained within the email.
