Confidential information stored on a computer of an unsuspecting employee
The risk management department found confidential files on the computer of an employee who wasn't authorized to access them. Moreover, when the incident happened, the employee was on vacation.
The DLP system showed that remote access software was regularly launched on this PC. It turned out that the network administrator was involved. He temporarily stored confidential data on the victim's computer before transmitting it to third parties. The honest employee could have become an innocent accomplice in the information leakage, which was prevented.
