Many companies face the unsettling risk of their employees engaging in illegal and unethical activities. We previously aided a technology company in investigating an employee involved in bribery and selling the company’s trade secrets to a competitor.
X-Tech is a company that specializes in developing smart automotive systems. While the company had been experiencing steady growth, there were recent unusual developments: a sudden increase in customer turnover and heightened competition, posing a threat to the company’s market position. Faced with these anomalies, X-Tech enlisted the services of Red Star Detectives to uncover the root causes of the issues.
Initial investigations indicated that the problem might be within the marketing department. However, a more thorough inquiry by Red Star Detectives uncovered that an employee named Xiao Rong from X-Tech had been bribing members of the marketing department to gain access to the company’s customer resources. These resources were then sold to a competitor, Company Y, which enabled them to acquire knowledge of X-Tech’s competitive strategies and take counteractions, resulting in an increased customer turnover.
During the comprehensive investigation of Xiao Rong, Red Star Detective Agency utilized various investigative methods:
1. Video Surveillance: Red Star Detectives installed cameras at locations frequently visited by Xiao Rong to track her movements and activities.
2. Personnel Tracking: Red Star Detectives closely monitored Xiao Rong’s activities through tracking.
3. Communication Analysis: Red Star Detectives analyzed Xiao Rong’s communications to understand her interactions with the marketing personnel.
4. Asset Investigation: Red Star Detectives conducted a financial inquiry into Xiao Rong’s financial situation to understand her asset sources and financial condition.
These investigative methods furnished Red Star Private Detectives with a wealth of information and data, providing insight into Xiao Rong’s personal and professional life, leading to the acquisition of crucial evidence.
After an extensive investigative effort, Red Star Detective Agency gathered substantial evidence, demonstrating that Xiao Rong had indeed sold X-Tech’s trade secrets, supported by:
1. Video Evidence: Video evidence of Xiao Rong visiting Company Y’s office.
2. Personnel Tracking Evidence: Evidence of Xiao Rong visiting Company Y through personnel tracking.
3. Communication Records: Records of communication between Xiao Rong, the marketing personnel, and Company Y.
4. Asset Evidence: Evidence of the illegitimate source of Xiao Rong’s wealth.
Armed with this compelling evidence, Red Star Detective Agency provided X-Tech with a comprehensive solution, including:
1. Terminating Xiao Rong and reporting the relevant evidence to the authorities for legal action.
2. Pursuing legal action against the actions of Company Y.
3. Strengthening the protection of the company’s trade secrets by implementing a confidential information protection system and processes, along with enhancing training and supervision of the marketing personnel.
4. Safeguarding the company’s competitive strategies by engaging in advanced technological research and enhancing product differentiation to maintain market competitiveness.
X-Tech heeded these recommendations, implementing a range of measures to bolster the safeguarding of its trade secrets and enhance employee oversight.
Red Star Detective Agency provided a substantial amount of evidence and data, assisting X-Tech in successfully identifying the cause of the incident, preventing further acquisition of the company’s trade secrets by other entities, and strengthening the company’s competitive stance. The top-quality investigative services of Red Star Investigations garnered high praise and commendation from X-Tech.
