Economic climate ''sees increase in data theft''
The current economic climate is resulting in an increasing number of data thefts from corporations.
This is according to Alexei Lesnykh, business development manager for device control software firm DeviceLock.
Mr Lesnykh said: "In these times of current global economic downturn, simple 'pocket-based' techniques of taking away valuable corporate data have become much more popular and dangerous."
The comments follow the publication of research conducted by Symantec and the Ponemon Institute, which revealed that 59 per cent of employees surveyed who lost of left a job in 2008 admitted to stealing confidential company information.
This included items such as customer contact lists, the survey confirmed.
Mr Lesnykh added that the most dangerous data leak method was "taking away hard copy files" or printed documents.
Earlier this month, Good Technology and Anson Bourne found that IT departments in large UK businesses are concerned about security issues and the lack of control they have over employees' personal mobile devices in the workplace.
