Partner Steve Loewengart Featured In Columbus C.E.O.
Columbus Managing Partner Steve Loewengart was quoted in an article entitled ”Playing It Safe” in Columbus C.E.O.
The article focused on former employers keeping corporate data confidential.
A 2012 study by Symantec, the computer security software company, shows that half of employees who left or lost their jobs in the previous 12 months kept confidential corporate data. Forty percent planned to use it at their new jobs and 56 percent didn’t believe it’s a crime.
“Restrictive covenants such as non-disclosure, non-solicitation and non-compete protect a company’s legitimate business interests. It’s a very hot area now. People are more mobile and less loyal to their employers. Employers are concerned that they may be losing proprietary information, despite having covenants in place,” said Steve.
