“Digital Forensics: A Look into Employee Data Theft Investigations” by Sensei’s Zach Roush was featured in a recent blog post by ACEDS.

Employee data theft happens frequently, and especially in current times where employees are leaving or being terminated. Some may be due to layoffs while others may leave for personal or other reasons. However, there is always a risk with a departing employee.
The employee had access to information that a company stores on their computers, and if the employee had a work cellphone, there could be data there as well. In some cases, a departing employee may knowingly take company data with them upon departure or termination – and they may delete data from devices.
