Intel Settles With Engineer Who Took Secret Docs to Microsoft

An Intel engineer who left the company early last year and took thousands of confidential documents to Microsoft with him has admitted the wrongdoing and agreed to settle with the CPU giant. 

Varun Gupta, who worked for Intel’s data center group for about 10 years, left the company to join Microsoft as a “Principal for Strategic Planning in Cloud and AI” early last year. But before leaving the chipmaker, the engineer took 3,900 confidential and secret documents on USB drives about Intel Xeon processors, their pricing, and strategies. Later on, he accessed them from a Microsoft-issued laptop.
