Talk about being screwed up. This guy seems to be royally screwed up! I wonder what good his future is now? Read the bolded section of text. Some Indian’s do manage to get neck deep in shit!!! And all for sending out a document.
One thing thats clear here is that this guy was played into this trap. His own current employer HP screwed him by reporting it IBM. I guess he must have stepped on all the wrong toes. Sadly for him, I guess it’s GAME OVER!
Atul Malhotra, the former Director of Sales and Business development in output Management Services for IBM Global Services will be sentenced on October 29 for 10 years in prison and a fine of $250,000, reports PC world. However, Malhotra has pleaded guilty for spying trade secrets from IBM to HP, the U.S. Department of Justice, reported PC world.
Malhotra, who will be sentenced for 10 years imprisonment and a fine of $250,000 was pat ratted by HP. HP was very clear that Malhotra violated HP policies and that HP followed its policies by investigating, firing and reporting Malhotra to IBM and law enforcement. Followed by this move, Malhotra has been terminated from his role as vice president of HP’s printer division.
The email Malhotra sent to the HP executives said that the IBM document would help the HP sales team understand the goals of IBM as HP set pricing for prospective deals.
