One of Intel’s employee blamed of trade secret

Written by IT News on 5:48 AM

According to a recent article posted by the online edition of The Boston Globe newspaper, a former Intel employee has been accused of stealing important information from the Santa Clara-based leading chip maker. In addition, information has emerged after he took a new job at Intel's long time rival Advanced Micro Devices.


Biswahoman Pani of Worcester has been accused in a criminal complaint filed by the FBI, to have copied a number of confidential Intel documents, including 13 "top secret" the company files containing critical and very sensitive design plans for its future processor chips. According to FBI Special Agent Timothy Russel in the Bureau's Boston computer crime squad, Biswahoman Pani managed to copy more than 100 pages of sensitive documents Intel, as well as 19 computer-aided-design drawings, which are all found in his house, following a search on 1st July.

According to a sworn statement by Timothy Russel, Pani was satisfied that he could not see his wife very often, as she worked at an Intel plant in California. On 29 May, the Santa Clara Company agreed to transfer her to the Hudson, but a few hours after the transfer was approved Pani submitted his resignation claiming that he was interested to take a job with a hedge fund.

His real reason was quite different, according to Russel, Intel's former employee had negotiations for a possible job at AMD in several months. He started working for Advanced Micro Devices on 2nd June, eight days before his contract with Intel ended, which means that he still had access to his Intel laptop and the company's computer network. Russel said that Pani took advantage of their situation to collect sensitive documents.

"Intellectual property is an important asset for Intel, said company spokeswoman Claudine Mangano." Principle, we asked the Department of Justice and the FBI to investigate the activities, and we cooperate with the investigation. "

Pani has not been taken into custody, but he was ordered to surrender his passport. "My client vigorously maintain their innocence and plans to fight these charges in court," said R. Bradford Bailey, Pani's Attorney.
