Employee Termination Procedures

RoyaleA (2001156) writes "I've worked in the IT industry for 8 years and for whatever reason I've never had to deal with a disgruntled employee that either quits or is terminated. It just happened last week. This employee was a VP, so they had access to a lot of company data (client information, financials, etc). Now, I like to think of myself as paranoid when it comes to keeping records of everything that goes on since I still have access log files from 2003, but I'm wondering what exact procedures other SysAdmins take when dealing with this. It's a small company (10 client nodes, 2 servers) so there's no real policy in place to go by. So far, I've disabled the account on the LDAP, disabled the employee's website credentials, archived all of the access logs to an encrypted flash drive, and cloned their old PC to an offsite backup machine. Being a responsible admin, I need to there anything I'm overlooking? This employee was pretty pissed off..."

Trap the logins (1)

If he tries to log back in, you want to know about it. Other than that, you've done everything reasonable and probably more than you needed. If he logs back in, he isn't just commiting a tort against the company, he's breaking several laws. Angry or not, a professional won't do that. If he's a professional.

Roger that, I think I've done my job then. I'll keep an eye on attempted logins. I did just get word that 2 hours before his company credit card was shut off, a purchase was made at Best Buy...probably not business as far as professional, I'd beg to differ. We'll see how this all plays out.

When we've had higher-ups or people extremely familiar with several employees leave, we've also done a mandatory password reset for our users.
