    Key stroke monitoring, in addition to monitoring email and internet usage. Everything you view on the internet at work, including your “secure” banking sessions, is first downloaded to your workplace server before it’s viewed on your monitor. You used their property and bandwidth to access it, so they have the ability and right to read it.

    What a surprise! They own all the equipment and are paying you to do your job. It is really a shame they have to watch you. Most companies are somewhat tolerant of some private use but there have been estimates people spend a significant amount of time using these resources for non-work related things.

    As far as the government is concerned, do you really think anybody is interested in monitoring your day to day activities? Get over it, your life is simply not that interesting.

    I don’t have time at work to surf the net, or conduct my own business on the company phone, fax or computer. I have my own computers and take care of my business on my computers. I don’t think that it is so difficult to keep my personal life and work separate.

    I’ve wall papered my entire bedroom with “tin foil”. So I’m covered!

    Perhaps a new option on new houses should be anti-bugging features such as metal walls, shutters over windows, control of infrared leaks, RF and audio jammers, and so forth. Should provide hundreds of thousands new manufacturing and installation jobs. Progress.

    The manufacturing facility I work at has several internet connected computers available for use in the break room. The IT dept FAQs state outright that they have the ability to see every web page you visit and advises employees to do their private (banking, mortgage, taxes, et cetera) at home. Now, if they could get off their @$$ and block #$%^&* Facebook from the manufacturing computers….
