What Would You Do If a Departing Employee Destroyed Computer Records?

in Business

Here’s a management question for you: What would you do if you discovered that an exiting employee destroyed all the files on his computer? Company work product? Wiped it out? And say he did that to a number of computers at your place of business on the same day. And say that not only were the computers wiped out, but so were the backups on the server. And his physical backup went missing.

Would you?

A) Pursue legal remedies?

B) Forget about it and consider it a lesson learned?

C) Tell yourself that you can’t trust any employee ever again?

With a lot of work product these days being in bits and bytes, what would you do if your company work product were destroyed?
