The unauthorized transfer of data from a computer known as data extrusion can be devastating. Theft of intellectual property cases are our most common engagements. ArcherHall is familiar with the numerous creative attempts to exfiltrate data that employees mistakenly believe will be undetectable. The creativity of the perpetrators is unlimited, but we have found the most common methods to be:
- Copying to external drive
- File sharing
We have worked on behalf of both the victims as well as the corporations, which have recruited new employees to ensure that sensitive data does not accompany them causing potential lawsuits.
