Deja vu all over again

The list of convictions for the Wikileaks scandal is a short one.  One more today.  Again.

Guilty Verdict in Swiss Case,” Wall Street Journal, January 20, 2015 C7.  Swiss banker convicted of leaking confidential client data to Wikileaks in breach of Swiss law.  He claimed he was a whistleblower.  He had been jailed twice before for similar conduct with this data.  All he got this time was a fine ($50K), and that was suspended.

After he got fired from his job at a bank, he never returned the copy of the bank’s client data he kept at home.  It showed up on Wikileaks.

How do you deal with former employees who have your information?
