Case StudyHow we solved data theft from an ex-employee

One of the largest private financial services firms in Australia had an ex-employee download over 200 individual client account profiles and began soliciting clients for their new employer.

The files contained individual client account designations, account numbers, personal financial information, and cash balances which the firm considered to be private information.
