IT professional was controlling CEO’s home network, personal computers, and family emails from the office
The final straw was when the IT professional pranked the CEO and family on their computers
Company concerned that the individual would retaliate on family or company
Company couldn’t fire the IT professional because they worked for the company as well
IT professional refused to give the passwords to control the home wireless network
CEO wanted to ensure he and his family were secure from the prying IT professional
CEO wanted to change providers but didn’t know how to do so securely
We developed a holistic plan to protect the CEO and his family as well as the company. Our four-step approach included:
Protecting the company and family from data loss, extortion, and negative business impact
Working alongside a new IT services firm to implement new infrastructure in the home
Confirming all computers and mobile devices are protected with security monitoring software
Placing privacy protections on personal accounts and devices
By reaching out to BlackCloak, the CEO and his family successfully prevented the former company IT professional from accessing their life, home, network, and personal computers. They now have a secure wireless network and home automation system, have privacy for their entire family, and have trusted concierge in place for all future questions and issues. After several months, BlackCloak is still providing relevant updates and guidance for the CEO and his family.
