Re: Confidentiality Agreement Documentation
@Joe. Silicon Valley S2....just kidding. This makes sense. The argument could be made that utilizing company resources during creation were pivotal to the point that the product could not have been created otherwise.

Re: DropBox and Google Drive are free and easy to obtain.
@Dr.T, (personal email at work). That's fine but it should still be monitored for sensitive data. DLP can monitor not only SMTP but webmail as well.

Re: Confidentiality Agreement Documentation
I agree but I do not know if data created by an employee would be owned by that employee. If that was the case the company would not have owned any data, it would be all employees' data, which is not the case as we know it.

Re: For decades
Agree. We would need to trust and respect the employees and expect that is mutual. If employees want to share data with third parties, there is no policy or system that can prevent from that. One can easily memorize the information needed before leaving the company.

Re: Confidentiality Agreement Documentation
Agree, acceptable use policy is already covering basic information that company's customers' data could not be shared with third parties.

Re: DropBox and Google Drive are free and easy to obtain.
It can be blocked but you need tools and services for that. Some companies do not want to restrict employees' options to use personal email at work, that that creates a risk of losing data without knowing it of course.

Re: Confidentiality Agreement Documentation
That is something certainly interesting to know. The norm is that you do not take company's customer list and share with somebody else.

Data or insights?
I would doubt that anybody individually would own the data in an organization, it will be like customers' data being taken and released to other companies no customers would like that. If it is insights gained from data then I would think the person who created the insights would own it and he/she can take it, if it is not directly related with the customers I would say.

Re: Confidentiality Agreement Documentation
True, an Acceptable Use Policy will not stop an employee's actions whether they be intentional or unintentional. However, this can and will be grounds for immediate termination of employment if enforced appropriately.

I am referencing to electronic data created/stored that pertains to one's job function in best interest of the Company. And if it wasn't something an employee created that does not give them the right exfiltrate data on the Company's equipment or network after being discharged and then escorted off the premises. If an employee is being terminated all accounts are to be frozen and their electronic equipment should be physically seized immediately. Clearly you do not have application white listing in place if you and or your employees are installing AOL Instant Messenger. Although it is not supported anymore the TOC and TOC2 protocol was open source by AOL.

Re: Confidentiality Agreement Documentation
Acceptable Use Policies and the like will inform, but in general simply storing something on a company server will not make it the company's property. (Otherwise, AOL Instant Messenger would have become open source 12 years ago!) *Creating* it with company equipment while at work, however, can be a different story.
