HP Exec f*cked up for life

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.

    I just found out about this almost a year later, and I am so sorry to hear this.

    This much I know- Atul Malhotra is just being made a scapegoat by IBM and HP, because all their other spying scandals have come to the fore. Now they are just trying to act holier- than-thou.

    Atul may be guilty of bad judgement, but he is certainly not guilty of “stealing” or “selling” trade secrets. As it turns out, the info had only limited value and was dated.

    Atul had to admit to all this nonsense because there was too much pressure on him from the HP people, who are just trying to divert attention from more intricate gory stuff going on within the company.

    Atul is a brilliant, family guy, with middle class values. He acted rashly and over smartly in trying to impress his new boss, but the intent was not to “sell” information, just to share information to illustrate a point – information he knew to be harmless in the current context of time.

    Atul, wherever you are, I believe in you, and I know your intent was not malicious.
