Make Proprietary and Confidential Data Defense Part of Your Company's Standard Process

When employees leave your organization, you're at risk for more than corporate brain drain.

From bringing competitor IP to your organization as a new employee, to exfiltrating IP prior to leaving your organization, insider data breaches can put you at monetary, regulatory, and reputational risk. And you likely won't know it happened until it's too late.

Get ahead of IP data theft at every stage of the employment lifecycle, with Secure IP Services that augment your existing onboarding and offboarding processes.

Two Ways to Engage Secure IP

Choose ad hoc or programmatic analysis and reporting to suit your organizational level of risk augment and your existing IP protection processes. Both options provide a comprehensive look into the digital behaviors of employees to ensure sensitive and confidential data is not flowing into or out of your organization.

Secure IP On Demand

When you'd like more information about the IP-related online behaviors of a particular incoming or exiting employee, choose Secure IP On Demand. For a flat fee per report, a forensic examiner evaluates key forensic artifacts and compiles a Secure IP Report which contains a summary and samples of findings and recommended next steps.

Secure IP Managed Services

Get the full picture of enterprise risk when you engage Secure IP Managed Services. Our team collaborates with your key stakeholders to set evaluation thresholds for high-risk employees, including by title, seniority, and level of IP access. Remote systems imaging, one-on-one interviews, and forensic analysis are summarized and synthesized in a Secure IP Report so you'll know what actions to take next—and see insider threat trends over time—all for a flat monthly fee.

A Programmatic Approach to Securing IP


Focus our forensic expertise on specific employees, or work with our team to determine automatic Secure IP analysis triggers for employees based on role, experience, data access, or other factors.

New employees can bring IP to your organization from their former employers. Detect and prevent competitors' data infiltrating your systems and avoid consequences for material reuse due to a new employee’s past behavior.

Modernize Your Offboarding Checklist

A shifting employment landscape and radically remote workspaces mean it's easier and more advantageous than ever for employees to take enterprise IP to their next gig. Add IP security to your offboarding checklist so you can stop data theft before it becomes a breach. Find out what's missing from your checklist.

Augment Your Processes with Lighthouse Expertise

HR and IT teams typically responsible for offboarding are not equipped to decipher the employee behaviors associated with exfiltrating IP and confidential data. Engage Lighthouse digital forensics experts to remove this burden from in-house resources. Our specialists perform employee interviews and provide offboarding reports, so you have a clear picture of IP theft risk.

Escalate Without Delay

When a light-touch employee interview uncovers evidence of data theft, you’ll want to move quickly to determine the extent of the breach. From broad-stroke activity analysis to forensic collection, investigation and review, experience seamless people and technology handoffs under one roof.

Control Your Costs

Data Breaches Caused by Employee Negligence Cost Organizations an Average of $6.6M Annually*

When it comes to data breaches, prevention is far more cost-effective than cure. Starting at less than $6,000 monthly,** Lighthouse employee offboarding services reduce the risk of IP exfiltration by performing specialized offboarding activities.

Macroeconomic trends make staffing and turnover unpredictable—your costs for controlling IP theft shouldn’t have to be, too. Pay one flat fee each month for onboarding or offboarding interview and reporting services provided by Lighthouse.
