Everyone talks about employee onboarding, but what about offboarding? Whether the change in employment is due to termination, a layoff, the end of a contract, or employee choice, the circumstance can elicit a strong emotional response. Even employees who leave on good terms can get curious in the result of their departure. Without proper offboarding, former employees continue to hold the “keys to the kingdom.” Do you really want to risk your organization’s reputation?

Of course not.

Did you know that only 29% of organizations have a formal offboarding process in place? Or that 59% share access credentials with other employees? How about that 52% share access with contractors? Heck, 53% say it’d be easy for a former employee to log in and access data! And 50% report that it can take up to a week or more to remove access to all sensitive systems!

Well, surely you know that 55% of US companies report that their organizations have been breached in the past, and that 44% of them had breaches that together cost millions of dollars…?

You didn’t?! Wow. Well, isn’t that crazy?
