IP Thefts to Plague Asia

The detection of such thefts will become more difficult in Asia going forward, as companies move toward solid-state drives (SSDs) and more data protection regulations are introduced.
Speaking during a briefing here Thursday, Denny Husen, director of investigations and disputes at Kroll Advisory Solutions, said there have been many cases of employees leaving a company and bringing confidential information with them to rival firms in 2012. Kroll Advisory Solutions is the investigative services and risk management arm of data recovery company Kroll Ontrack.
