WD40 Knows the Value of Their Secret Formula

Recently, WD40 has hired a security company to move their secret formula – Water Displacement formula, version 40 created in 1953 – to a new location. According to the company’s CEO, “We just move out our secret formula yesterday to a new bank vault.” with the help of Brink’s Security. Many other companies also have similar concerns where protecting secret or proprietary information is key to their business’s success. While it’s clear that WD-40 knows how valuable their formula is, it’s not clear that other businesses take the same care. This is especially true when talking about data that lives in a computer somewhere. How do you prevent a disgruntled employee from walking it out the door? How do you stop them from printing it or emailing it?
