Case Study

A software developer,  identified an opportunity to launch and market a new product focused on the financial services sector by offering the same functionality as an existing product but ‘doing it better’. The software product was to be developed on a new platform incorporating modern architecture, which required specialist development skills.

A team of developers was hired from a rival company which had a significant share and presence in the market. One of those developers emailed a number of software development scripts from his work email address to his personal Hotmail address a couple of days before leaving the rival company to join our client.

The initial investigation revealed that the email indiscretion could be explained. It also turned out that the scripts were open source, which means they were freely available in the public domain and not owned by the rival company.

The full case study can be found here.
