Theft as a way of revenge
The most common reason for theft on the part of employees is the desire to take revenge on the boss. Studies show that over 75 percent of employees who have committed crimes are taking revenge on management for various things such as reneging on promised bonuses, non-payment of wages, lack of career growth, or undeserved dismissal. It is worth noting that in companies with a lack of corporate culture, employees steal more often than in organizations with more democratic views. Adrenaline
There is a type of person who does risky things, but not for material gains. They steal not for a specific purpose, but because of the desire to experience an adrenaline rush. Such employees, at first glance, do not give themselves away in any way. They are responsive and friendly, often become the soul of the company, and quickly gain the confidence of their superiors. They will not work in the company for years; a few months will be enough for them to achieve certain career successes and gain a good reputation. And as soon as they feel that the time is right, they will slip away with all the confidential data, leaving not a single trace behind them. Perhaps the scammers will not even publish them later, but the fact of the theft itself will give them indescribable pleasure. Collusion
There are cases when an employee commits theft not on his own initiative, but as a result of collusion with third parties. For example, an average salesperson may be promised a warm place, a decent salary and a high position at the client's company in exchange for the database from his current place of work. As a rule, such transactions are carried out as a result of a personal relationship between the buyer and the seller, which is not surprising, because personal connections are often involved in sales. Money
This is not always the first, but it's also far from the last reason for insider theft. Often, employees, like ordinary hackers, use their powers solely for personal gain. Taking advantage of their official privileges, they can easily get hold of any secret information and sell it to interested parties for six months' worth of salary. For the more courageous, there is another way to approach things – by blackmailing the boss. The monetary reward here remains questionable, but the chances of ending up behind bars grow exponentially. Inattention
Sometimes the theft is completely unintentional. A simple example: an employee prints confidential documents and accidentally forgets them on the printer. At the same time, the cleaning lady throws them into the trash, where anyone passing by can pull them out and make them public for any of the reasons listed above. As a result of the investigation, it is the employee who left the documents on the printer who will be punished. How fair is that? LeaksID
