AmEx Former Singapore Worker Fined for Misusing Client Data

A former American Express Co. employee was fined S$24,000 ($19,150) by a Singapore court after he was convicted of misusing client data.

Ricky Suparman, who worked as a corporate sales manager at the U.S. credit card company, copied and e-mailed confidential files to himself in February 2012 before resigning to join a competitor, according to court documents. American Express reported the matter to the Singapore police the following month.
