Monitoring Your Employees Electronically

ITBusinessEdge: Monitoring Your Employees Electronically

How do you control what your employees do with technology, especially online technology, while at work – block sites, maintain archives of sites visited, archive e-mails to prevent tampering?

“Earlier this month, I spotted the article provocatively titled, “SMB Security: Do You Need Employee-Monitoring Software?” over at Small Business Computing. The article walks through various methods that businesses can use to monitor employees in the office.

It caught my attention because I consider some of the suggestions a tad invasive and morale-sapping, not to mention potentially illegal depending on the locality. The unfortunate truth, though, is that not all employees are angels, either. It is not uncommon for staffers to be up to shenanigans to hide their tracks and get away scot-free.”
