It happens from time to time. Someone isn’t pulling their weight or they’re not a good fit for your company. So they have to go.
But before you take action, you need to make sure you have a strategy in place to keep your business protected from an insider attack.
Believe it or not, when you fire someone, they may be a little upset about it. A few people may even want revenge. And what’s the best way to take revenge? By stealing your data, of course.
So it makes good business sense to have a checklist of things to cut off or shut down when someone leaves your business.
Make sure that access to all of their accounts is blocked, as well as access to any of your files.
You should also have a policy for how you manage access to data and accounts for anyone who resigns. If they have a notice period, can you be sure they won’t use that time to steal client data instead of tying up loose ends?
Spend a little time now creating policies and ensuring you know exactly which accounts everyone has access too, and you’ll save yourself a lot of trouble in the future.
