Most IT teams invest resources to ensure data security when onboarding new employees. You probably have a checklist that covers network access and permissions, access to data repositories, security policy acknowledgement, and maybe even security awareness education. But how robust is your offboarding security checklist?

Glassdoor reported recently that 35% of hiring decision makers expect more employees to quit in 2018 compared to last year. Whether through malicious intent or negligence, when insiders leave, there’s a risk of data leaving with them. To ensure data security, you need to develop and implement a robust offboarding process.
