Employee theft of customer information
QCC received a call from the worried CEO of a company whose business involved leasing high value items to private individuals. He suspected that his sales director was planning on leaving the company with a copy of the customer database to join a rival start up business. QCC were able co-ordinate with the company solicitors and execute an Anton Pillar civil search and seizure order. This involved QCC’s investigators visiting the new company’s offices and the directors homes and seizing servers, workstations, laptops and other items.
Items identified in the forensics analysis of the seized exhibits included numerous contract templates and other intellectual property created by QCC’s Client as well as their customer data base. QCC analysts were then able to present their findings to the Client’s council, leading to a successful court order limiting the planned new business operation and recovering significant compensation and costs.
