Dear All,
Kindly help me out.
This is the situation. A team of our employees-Developers has violated the Data Security Policy, Information Security Policy and HR Policy of the company.
1)- They tried to delete the database of several projects by writing some Truncate scripts in the code.
2)- They have put some encrypted code for the database for locking it and we are unable to do a single edit now. Our team is working on how to decry-pt the code to unlock the database, but it's still in progress.
2)- After salary credit, all the employees left with immediate effect by giving some UN important reasons.
Now, when we contacted them for the solution, they denied helping us and told, that whatever you want to do, you can do it.
So, please let me know the proper way of action, should be taken against them.
Looking for your valuable suggestions.
Thanks and Regards,

From India, Bhopal
Hello Sanjana,

Have the employees signed the relevant Policies in-place--like NDA, Data Security, etc?

Since when were they working in your company? And what was the general behavioral pattern of this lot? There have been cases where competitors have 'planted' THEIR people in rival companies just to steal data/projects.

This is an outright case of data theft--just go & lodge a Police Complaint with the Cyber Crimes Cell in your city [ordinary police stations wouldn't accept such complaints due to lack of wherewithal & knowledge].

You may also need to have the necessary documentation proofs that they were contacted & they denied any help.

Do you know where they went--meaning where did they join from your company?

Now looking @ this situation from another angle, it COULD BE POINTING to the possibility of a very serious HR problem within the company--unless there was something very wrong with the general working atmosphere, a bunch of employees wouldn't leave the way you say they did [however this doesn't justify what they actually did--data theft--for which they ought to face the consequences]. This could also be pointing to the lack of suitable checks & balances in the technical team(s). There would definitely have been some tell-tale signs that were missed, obviously.

All the Best.
