Protecting data from theft

Andrew Morris, Martin Maguire, Nathan Stuttard


You are the head of the data breach Investigation department at the major manufacturing company, BigMetal. It has come to your attention that several reports have been stolen. These confidential reports contained the company’s key innovation ideas, which are very important for future products. It is possible that this breach may have occurred due to human error, possibly through the paper reports unwittingly being left on a train, though you cannot be sure of this. Your supervisor has tasked you with investigating the cause of this data breach. If it was accidental, it must be established how the breach occurred from a behavioural perspective. It is your task to determine the underlying reasons as to why the breach occurred, rather than simply what happened at the time to cause it.
