Sweden's Haldex reports suspected corporate espionage to police

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Swedish brake systems firm Haldex (HLDX.ST) has filed a police report of suspected corporate espionage and data breaches after it discovered that a former employee had copied confidential information from its servers.

Haldex said the information, which was mainly financial, could have been passed on to at least one person in the financial industry.

“Given the large number of documents downloaded, we cannotexclude that the potential spreading of all files together may have led to the disclosure of insider information,” Haldex Chairman Jorgen Durban said in a statement.

The Swedish Economic Crime Authority has been involved in the case, Durban added.

Since the data breach was found, Haldex has changed its protection practices regarding digital material, the company said.
