“You are familiar with the scenario: one of your employees leaves to go work for a competitor, but before he goes, he copies confidential information for use at his new job.  While the scenario may not have changed much, the means of obtaining the information has.  The days of photocopying documents and sneaking out the door with hard copies are long gone.  Most information is now available electronically, and large amounts of data can be copied efficiently and discreetly via computer.  The good news is that in many instances, accessing information electronically leaves a distinct trail for a former employer to follow.  The bad news, though, is that if the proper steps are not taken, this trail can quickly be lost.”
