What happens when… ‘ Someone leaves the business unexpectedly’

When a p45 is issued unexpectedly there’s a lot to do for a business and protecting security should be top of the list.

When employees are leaving a business, there’s usually a handover and a smooth transition but when an employee has to be ‘let go’ in less than favourable circumstances, it can be a bit of a scramble and with a disgruntled ex-employee the risk is always greater, here we take a look at…

‘ What Happens When Someone Leaves The Business Unexpectedly’ 

Let’s set the scene,  meet our client – we’ll call him Fred, some of you will remember him from last month’s edition of ‘What Happen’s When – he’s the guy who left his laptop on a train, he was also the guy who clicked on the phishing link in our previous job.

Well, he’s back, and things aren’t going well, Fred’s discovered one of his team have been up to no good and has no option but to dismiss them, there’s just one problem they’ve got access to everything! systems, social media and crucial confidential information.

So what happens next?

  • Whilst the HR team are on the case making the necessary arrangements, Fred knows he can rely on his outsourced security support team at Yobah.
  • Yobah get to work ensuring Fred’s organisation is secure and protected by resetting the users’ credentials to a random complex password and block the account from signing in to new sessions
  • Revoking all Office 365/Azure AD active sessions to ensure the user is signed out from all office 365 (on both personal and corporate devices
  • Remotely wiping any corporate data from personal devices (whilst keeping personal data intact)
  • Remotely wiping any corporate-owned devices
  • Ensuring that if the users’ data may be shared with other current employees or the data is retained as per company governance policies and should access be required, the data can be restored or searched for via eDiscovery tooling.
