If a bank disabled an ex-employee's access by revoking user id. Does that mean nobody can access anything using his identity?

For example, can not log on to his PC as him etc. Then all his personal data on his PC is safe?

I am asking because I just left a bank, worrying about the personal data still on my PC.

    On a PC your data is not safe from anyone who can log into that computer. They don't need to have to have your password. Since if they can use their own password on the computer they can access the hard disk and read anything.

    Also with a work computer it will be on the company network so they can read everything on the computer without even logging on to the computer anyway.

    Also many computers now have automatic back up, and the ability to return to old versions of sub directories. So you can't even erase everything without it being recoverable.

    The only safe thing to do is to purchase a second hard disk when you start working for a company and are assigned a computer. Set it up to be the same as the one in the computer and then swap the hard disks.
    Then when you leave the company replace your own disk with personal information with the one you took out when you joined the company!

    [You should always be doing this anyway in case there is a hard disk crash, which does occasionally happen and then you are in trouble if you don't have a spare disk ready.]
