You'll want to look into APT groups APT Wiki Article, that's going to be your first start. Then you'll want to look into how tech hiring is done, specifically the H1B visa program, which allows foreign nationals to work in the US, specifically in the tech sector. Most large firms, even medium firms, are absolutely awful at the execution of data loss prevention (DLP), which if properly implemented and tuned would help mitigate exfiltration of some data.
This is my personal opinion on how this could have occurred, without personal inside knowledge of what happened. Thus, only speculation at this point.
