This video demonstrates how Intella can be used to identify intellectual property theft by running basic searches and filters. It starts with a scenario where a senior employee named Bob is suspected of stealing confidential information from Company A Pharmaceuticals and moving the information to his personal account to join Company B Pharmaceuticals, a competitor. Information about the pharmaceuticals company and its confidential formula has been obtained by the investigation.
The forensic image of Bob's home computer has been provided for examination, which shows that two MS Word documents are related to board meeting minutes for Company A Pharmaceuticals and the chemical breakdown of the secret formula. Investigation leads to a communication exchange between Bob and Sam indicating that Bob has stolen the confidential documents and forwarded to Sam in preparation for his new role in Company B Pharmaceuticals.
This example highlights how Intella can identify confidential company documents that an employee should not have access to on his home computer system, quickly identify intellectual property theft, and provide evidence for litigation purposes. It is important to note that while the video is a common use of intelligence in identifying intellectual property theft, different intellectual property theft cases may require different searching techniques depending on the available data and evidence.
