Data theft and intellectual property protection

Databases of clients and candidates are just part of the intellectual property (IP) that is key to the success of any recruitment business. This data is essential to the operation of recruitment agents, allowing them to put the right candidate in front of the right client. When an employee leaves, there is often a concern that they will take those databases, or other confidential IP, and use it for the benefit of a competitor.

Our team can assist by putting in place the right documentation to help you to protect valuable information (e.g. employment contracts and relevant policies) so if it appears that an employee has taken any IP, we can step in to prevent them from using that data.
