Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Following its spot on Channel 4's Cutting Edge series, MIS is pushing its employer-safeguard/privacy-intruding* (delete as appropriate) software, Sessionwall 3. Featured on last week's "Snoopers at Work" programme, the software allows employers to monitor email and Internet use at work - any network activity defined as abnormal by the company is immediately reported. The TV show was careful to show both sides of the hot topic of employee monitoring. While statistics show a continued misuse of company equipment to send personal emails and access sex sites on the Internet, its detractors accuse companies of invading personal privacy and acting like Big Brother. The programme suggested a compromise: employees sign an agreement acknowledging the fact that Internet and email use is monitored and they are therefore responsible for their actions. However, the scope for abuse of the system is worryingly large. It is also fair to assume that employees will have to deal with personal (and private) situations during the day. But all this will take years of court cases and legal precedents to sort out. In the meantime, you can do it anyway with the help of Sessionwall 3. And while it may not give you sufficient grounds to dismiss someone, it doesn't hurt to know, right? The Register's advice to monitored employees: Use your noddle. Use Hotmail. Use your cunning to sow disinformation – paranoid people are the most blinkered. (Steady on! - Ed) ®
