It used to be that an employee desiring to steal $2 million from your company would have a hard time doing so unnoticed. Today, that employee can do so undetected while having a casual conversation with you in the office.

Up until recently, sophisticated firewalls and password protection have been relatively sufficient to protect sensitive company information. Now, these measures are anything but sufficient. The proliferation of electronic devices such as iPods, camera cell phones, thumb drives, Blackberries, flash drives and all other sorts of downloadable devices have made all companies at risk for insider theft right under their proverbial noses. With the use of these devices, downloading significant amounts of data is easy, virtually instantaneous and often very difficult to detect.
