Can ex-employees access your systems?

telanova: the outsourced IT team that feels like your own

Providing advice, consultancy, helpdesk, monitoring and maintenance, updates, upgrades, security: all the things your in-house team would do, but better and at a fraction of the cost and hassle.

Can ex-employees access your systems?

30% of ex-employees can still access their previous employers files and email. So they could maliciously delete, spy, tamper or sell information.

Even if they have no malicious intent - having an unused and unmonitored account means no one may notice if it is compromised.

It is a huge GDPR fail.

That’s why telanova has a leaver procedure for our customers: This includes:

  • Do we need to do anything before they leave?
  • Reset passwords
  • Disable accounts
  • Change “shared” passwords (e.g. Wi-Fi)
  • Grant their manager access to their email and files
  • Remotely wipe business data from personal devices
  • Remove them from phone systems, websites etc
  • Set an out of office message

Engage telanova as your IT team and we will advise you so you can avoid potentially costly data protection mistakes.
