1 in 5 Employees Can and Would Take Company Data

A Harris Interactive survey found that nearly 1 in 5 (19%) office workers (age 18-34) would take customer data, price lists or product plans with them if they knew they were about to be terminated.

In addition, 16% (1 in 6) said they used old user IDs and passwords to access a former employer's computing systems.
