You Really Are Being Watched!

It’s possible that someone has been reading your e-mails, listening to your phone calls, and tracking your Internet use. No, it’s not a foreign spy. It’s not even your ex—it’s your employer. And she doesn’t even need to tell you she’s doing it.

Employers can legally monitor their workers however they want. They can log and review all computer activity as long as they own the machines. The most popular method of keeping tabs on employees is to track Internet use: A whopping 66 percent of companies monitor employee Internet activity, according to a survey released in February by the American Management Association and the ePolicy Institute. What are they looking for? Frequent visits to sexually explicit sites, game sites, and social-networking sites like Facebook on company time. Almost a third of those who said they monitor their employees have fired someone for inappropriate Web surfing.

Some companies monitor employees—tracking keystrokes, reviewing computer files, and reading e-mail—to ensure they’re staying loyal. Press leaks of confidential information and trade secrets are of legitimate concern to employers, and many will go to great lengths to make sure that their employees aren’t using company computers to pass on information to outside sources.

How They Do It

Most employers who monitor their workers use software loaded directly onto the workstations. Some applications are meant to monitor the Internet traffic of entire enterprises. There is no shortage of such software available for purchase by both companies and individuals. Programs like  can keep detailed logs of keystrokes and SMTP and POP sessions, screenshots, instant messages, and URLs visited on individual computers. some keylogger software can also be programmed to inform users at start-up that their computers are being monitored—a handy tool that can keep an employer in the legal clear.

Employee monitoring is, for the most part, completely legal. Only two states—Delaware and Connecticut—require employers to notify employees of monitoring. But most employers do (and should) make a point of alerting employees to surveillance, in order to avoid the fuzzy legal and ethical boundaries surrounding electronic privacy in the workplace. Of those surveyed who monitor their employees, 83 percent said they inform them that they’re doing it.

But not every company informs employees of its actions when it should, which can lead to serious trouble. Case in point: Hewlett-Packard. In 2006, HP hired private investigators to help find the source of information leaks. They used slimy—but legal—tactics such as digging through trash, sending fake e-mails loaded with hidden tracking software, and tailing journalists who were communicating with HP employees. They crossed the legal line when they used pretexting, or posing as someone else in order to get phone records. The chairman of HP and half a dozen board members resigned or were fired as a result, and the entire debacle shed new light on the possibilities of employee monitoring in the digital age.

E-mail monitoring can be particularly tricky. Employers can look through old e-mail, but monitoring e-mails in real time as they come in and out is still a gray legal area. An employer may intercept communications where there is actual or implied employee consent. Implied consent has been found where the employer simply gave notice of the monitoring. The only area that is definitely off-limits is employees’ personal laptops and hard drives.

How Do You Know?

If you’re using a company-owned computer, it’s probably a good idea to assume your activity is being monitored. And unless you’re using encrypted e-mail, you should try to avoid using your work e-mail address for personal correspondence. If that’s not realistic, then a good rule of thumb is to read every e-mail before you send it, and think about how your boss might react if he or she were reading it.

In most cases you can detect monitoring software the same way as other spyware. Any application firewall, such as Norton or McAfee, should be able to find unauthorized applications on your computer. Of course, in the case of monitoring by your employer, it’s likely that IT installed the monitoring app and has therefore set up rules to allow the application to work with your firewall while remaining invisible in the background.

Some antispyware programs can detect and even remove keyloggers. If you install a program like , you’ll probably be able to figure out whether you’re being monitored.

If a spyware scan isn’t revealing anything and you’re still apprehensive, you can check for any suspicious processes that are running. It’s hard to weed out the normal processes from the foreign ones, however, unless the invasive program creates an obvious folder or process (YouAreBeingWatched.exe). And some monitoring software, uses rootkit techniques, so you can’t even see its processes or files. Hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete and go to the Task Manager to see a list of processes running on your workstation. You may get lucky if you’re really familiar with your computer’s processes, or if the program really does use an obvious name (some programs do).

Of course, the easiest way to find out whether you’re being monitored is just to ask your employers. Ethical considerations will most likely push them to tell you the truth, and they probably know that if they lie it could be grounds for legal trouble later on. The responsible employer should create an Acceptable Use Policy to make what is appropriate in the workplace completely clear. But if you think you’re being watched (and you’re pretty sure it’s not the CIA or your ex), try a standard spyware detection program or monitor your computer’s processes.

If you do find you’re being monitored, depending on the circumstances, you might be able to take legal action against your employer. The only legal limit on workplace surveillance comes in the form of the ECPA (the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, passed in 1986), which prohibits employers from deliberately eavesdropping on personal conversations. The ECPA does not protect any kind of communication except the spoken word, though, so your every action while at work, including personal e-mails, is most likely subject to review by your employer. You might not be able to take your employer to court for watching you at work, but at least you’ll know to quit spending so much time playing on the company dime.

Can Employers Monitor Employee Emails?

Posted on July 11th, 2016 in anywheremonitor, Computer and Internet monitoring, Employee Monitoring | Comments Off on Can Employers Monitor Employee Emails?

Even though a lot of companies have set up email policies for their employees, the trend of using the office Internet for receiving and sending non-work-related emails continues. Which makes many of us wonder whether employers can monitor employee emails or not?

email-monitoring
Many employees are under the misconception that their employers do not have the right to monitor the emails and websites that they access through the workplace Internet. Employees also tend to incorrectly believe that their use and access of emails is private, and should not be breached by employers. However, the law appears to think differently on this matter.

In a world where trade secrets and business information are treated as ‘Intellectual Property’, it should come as no surprise that the emails being sent from the office is being surveilled. If employers can make their employees sign a nondisclosure and confidentiality agreement, they are well within their rights to monitor the office emails of their employees as well.

Is Email Monitoring Legal?

In the past, multiple lawsuits have been filed by employees against private employers, based on invasion of privacy rights and the Fourth Amendment’s prohibition of ‘unreasonable searches and seizures’ by government agents, government employers, and supervisors. The courts have sided with employers, and deemed the act of monitoring employee emails an employer privilege, provided a notice is given to the employees about this company practice.

In 2000, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit upheld the right of the employer to conduct electronic audits as per its company policy. In the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania case of Michael A. Smyth vs. The Pillsbury Company, 914 F. Supp. 97 (E.D. Pa. 1996), using the grounds of balancing-of-interests test, the court decided in favor of the company’s interest, thereby allowing employers to prevent inappropriate and unprofessional behavior pertaining to email communications or Internet usage by employees. Thus, employees can claim no right to privacy for non-work-related activities being carried out at the workplace, especially if the employer has disallowed employees from doing so through an email and Internet policy.

Employers Must Have An Email Policy

The employer must have a clearly written email policy in place, and must notify the employees of their practice of monitoring employee emails. Thus, once the employees have been notified about the company policy on monitoring emails, they cannot claim rights under reasonable expectation of privacy.

Companies that impose such monitoring must maintain an employee handbook that explicitly mentions the company’s policies on email monitoring and other restrictions. Such a handbook usually explains in detail about the extent of monitoring being practiced by the company. It also informs the employees not to expect privacy while dealing with emails during work. Such a handbook stating the company’s policy is considered to be a sufficient step towards notifying the employees.

Federal Law Allows Email Monitoring
The federal law of Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) does not afford employees the privilege of claiming privacy protection for non-work-related emails and Internet usage. The email can be intercepted, as long as it is in transit, and emails can be audited as well. However, the ECPA restricts employers for intentionally intercepting emails that are stored on the computer server. This ban on email interception has three exceptions, which gives companies the right to monitor the emails of their employee. The following exceptions that allow monitoring employee usage of emails are:

  1. Consent exception: When the employee reads and acknowledges the email monitoring policy given by the employer.
  2. Provider exception: The employer must be the sole provider of the system on which the employee works, and not a third-party servicer. Therefore, employers are allowed to examine emails on the systems provided by them to the employees.
  3. Ordinary-course-of-business exception: This exception allows employers to monitor emails sent during the ordinary course of a workday, and includes both work-related and personal emails that were sent from an office system.

The aforementioned exceptions and the employer’s right to intercept emails were enforced in the 1993 case of Bourke vs. Nissan Motor Corp., in U.S.A., in which Nissan won the case. Using intercepted emails, Nissan was able to prove that it had not violated the privacy or unfairly dismissed two employees for sharing sexually explicit emails at the workplace.

Employers must not delay in implementing such an email policy, as such a policy can act as a handy tool against privacy claims, and prevents sensitive business information from being breached or leaked.

So that means, as the owner, we could choose some employee monitoring software, like the iMonitor EAM or iMonitor Keylogger Pro,  to help you improve employee work efficiency and productivity.

How to Monitor Your Employees’ PCs Without Going Too Far?

Posted on July 4th, 2016 in Employee Monitoring, IMonitor Softwares | Comments Off on How to Monitor Your Employees’ PCs Without Going Too Far?

Offices

Do you know what your employees are doing on the Web? At a minimum, they’re probably goofing off watching YouTube videos. At worst, they could be steering your company toward financial ruin. In this quick guide, I’ll show you how to keep an eye on employee Internet use and monitor just about everything else they do with their PCs.

I can already hear the groans of disgruntled readers as I type these words (and if you’re worried about privacy at work, you have ways to stop your boss from spying on you). But gone are the days when PC monitoring was an optional, draconian security measure practiced only by especially vigilant organizations. Today, more than three-quarters of U.S. companies monitor employee Internet use. If your business is in the remaining quarter that doesn’t do so, you’re probably overdue for a policy change.

Why You Should Monitor
Everything your team does on company time–and on company resources–matters. Time spent on frivolous Websites can seriously hamper productivity, and visiting objectionable sites on company PCs can subject your business to serious legal risks, including costly harassment suits from staffers who may be exposed to offensive content.

That doesn’t look like work to me. iMonitor can give you a real-time look at employees’ screens.
Other consequences may be far worse than mere productivity loss or a little legal hot water. Either unintentionally or maliciously, employees can reveal proprietary information, jeopardizing business strategy, customer confidentiality, data integrity, and more.
And, of course, unchecked Web activity can expose your network and systems to dangers from malware and other intrusions. Even something as simple as a worker’s failure to keep up with Windows patches can be a threat to your business, so don’t think of monitoring as merely snooping.

Office-Worker

Employee Monitoring Software
Employee monitoring is just one facet of a larger discipline known as endpoint security, which includes everything from malware protection to policy enforcement and asset tracking. Large enterprise computing environments demand comprehensive endpoint-security systems, consisting of server software coupled with client software on each user’s machine, that can handle many of these functions at once. These systems tend to be complex enough to require the expertise of a trained IT pro. But in this guide, I’ll be looking primarily at simpler tools designed for smaller organizations.

For a small business, you have several good ways to achieve endpoint security. You can install a Web-hosted system that combines software on the PC with remote monitoring services to protect your computers and enforce compliance with company policies. You can combine a few complementary tools, such as a desktop security suite and professional tracking software. Or, if your company is very small and your budget is tight, you can adopt free tools à la carte.

Symantec’s cloud-based endpoint-protection service can monitor all of your company’s PCs with minimal setup time.
The most secure way to monitor PC use is to deploy a system that consists of a host, server, or appliance together with client-installed software. Unless you have a dedicated IT staff or the budget to bring someone in on a regular basis to check on things, a cloud-based service–such as Symantec.cloud or Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security–is probably the best choice. These services are relatively inexpensive and easy to set up compared with server offerings, and they give you the flexibility to set and monitor compliance with acceptable-use policies from a single management interface. They also deploy system security updates automatically, block malware, and protect sensitive files to prevent data from leaking out of your company. Better still, these hosted systems effectively protect laptops that frequently leave the office.
The cost for a hosted endpoint-security service is generally very low: A five-client license for Trend Micro Worry-Free will set you back less than $300 for two years.

If you’re not up for a total security overhaul and you just want to track user activity on a few systems, you have several affordable ways to go about it. Packages such as Interguard Sonar can monitor all e-mail and IM sessions, track and filter Web usage, log users’ keystrokes and program use, and capture screenshots on command for as little as $87 per user.

If you’re really on a shoestring budget, plenty of free and open-source tools can log PC and Web use. A freebie called iMonitor, for instance, can keep tabs on which applications your staffers are using and which sites they’re visiting, complete with simple reports that give you a pretty clear idea as to how employees are spending their time on their PCs. A word of caution on stand-alone tools, though: Some antimalware utilities can quickly identify and disable stand-alone monitoring tools, so you may need to create an exception in your malware protection settings to ensure that iMonitor can work properly on your systems.

Best Practices
It should go without saying that employee monitoring ought to be just one small component in a comprehensive strategy to protect your business and maintain productivity. Once you’ve made the choice to monitor, you should follow these general guidelines to ensure your success.

Be forthright: Nobody likes being spied on unwittingly. Unless you think someone on your team poses a serious threat that requires covert monitoring, it’s best to be up front with staffers about what you track and why. Many companies accomplish this with a simple statement in the employee handbook telling workers plainly that everything they do on company computers, including individual keystrokes, can and will be tracked. Letting employees know that their behavior is being monitored can serve as a powerful deterrent against unwanted online activity.

Filter proactively: Most good endpoint-security tools include Web and e-mail content filters that can block inappropriate sites and prevent users from sending or receiving files that can jeopardize your business. Use them. By limiting the ways your staffers can get into trouble, you can prevent problems up front.

Check reports regularly: There’s little point in generating usage reports if you’re not going to look at them. Take the time to at least spot-check the reports that your monitoring software generates so that you can identify potential problems early and take remedial action. Whatever you discover–whether it’s a time-wasting Website that everyone is watching this week or a single person who is addicted to solitaire–you can often fix problems with a simple e-mail that tells your team you know what’s up: “Just a reminder, people: Chatroulette is not an appropriate use of company time.”

How to Effectively Manage Remote Employees

Posted on June 30th, 2016 in Employee Monitoring | Comments Off on How to Effectively Manage Remote Employees

Management is nothing more than motivating other people.
– Lee Iacocca

In an organization, a conference call was going on between the different team members, some of whom were located at the headquarters, while others had joined in from remote regional offices. The manager kept on distinguishing between the people working from the headquarters and the regional offices by using the phrase “us and them” throughout the call. This led to bias among the team members. A good manager would have ensured that all the team members were treated as equals and addressed in the same way.

Managing remotely located employees can be a task in itself. Not only is it difficult to keep a tab on the work of the remote employees, the assessment of their performance can also be tedious. Often, remote employees harbor emotions of distrust, demotivation, perceived unfairness, and lack of appreciation for their efforts.

As a manager, you will have to ensure that you engage remote employees, and encourage them to approach you with their problems. You should let go of your fear of ‘what are they doing at work?’ as long as they achieve the desired results. This Buzzle article intends to make you aware about effective remote employee management.

 
Tips for Effective Remote Employee Management
 
Communicate Your Goals
It is important that all employees, whether at headquarters, a remote location, or working from home, be aware about the goals of the organization, and the teams they represent. If this is not clear, they may not feel motivated to work collectively towards the accomplishment of the goals. This is especially crucial for employees working from regional offices or home, as they should be aware about the long-term and short-term goals of the organization.
 
Be Result Oriented
It is important that you have a result-oriented approach when dealing with employees who are not located near you. Whatever the task you allot them, you should ensure that it gets completed before the deadline. For this, you may ask them to report their progress to you every day. This will not only help keep a tab on the completion of work, but also allow you to give feedback from time to time to reduce re-work. Also, gone are the days when managers dictated the employees to work as they pleased. Accord them the freedom of working creatively, as long as they achieve the desired result.

Effective Communication
It is important that all the team members are on the same page. Hence, it is crucial that there is effective communication between all the team members. This can be done with the help of video conferencing, teleconferencing, email, chat, phone messengers, etc. You can also share files easily through Skype. There are various software which will help assign tasks to the employees. This will not only allow remote employees to stay in touch with the rest of the team, but it will also foster clarity in communication.

Clarity in Responsibilities
If you expect the remotely-located employees to read your mind, then you are going to be sorely disappointed. Give them a clear picture of your expectations. There should be absolutely no ambiguity in the roles and responsibilities of the remote employees, because they are not present at headquarters. Any misunderstanding in duties can cause a delay in the completion of a task. Hence, it is important that they have clarity about their duties and responsibilities.

Insist on Collaboration
It may so happen that employees located at remote locations may be left out during meetings and discussions. Hence, you will have to ensure that there is some collective interaction of the team through a conference call every day. It can be sharing of innovative ideas, or something related to work. It is essential that there is regular interaction between the entire team so that the company benefits from the collaboration.

Translate Organizational Culture
All the employees, including the remotely located ones, should be aware of the organizational culture. They should know about the values, policies, and work ethics followed by the organization. Newsletters, magazines, employee engagement, and announcement emails, etc., of the organization should reach these employees as well. As a manager, it is your duty to make remote employees aware about the organizational culture, which should be uniform throughout the entire organization.

Express Trust
Make it a point that you appreciate the efforts of the remote staff from time to time, to engage them and build trust. Express your belief in their talent, values, and work ethics. This will help strengthen the bond between both the teams. Not only will it motivate the remote employees, but it will also encourage them to put in their best efforts. Whenever possible, try to reward good work executed by remote employees. This will help you to build trust.

Give Regular Feedback
As these employees are at different locations, there may be chances that the work may not get completed as required. Hence, it is advisable to set objectives, monitor the executed work, and give feedback for it. By giving suggestions or feedback, you will be able to control the flow of work as well as its accuracy. Moreover, timely feedback will ensure that the work is on the right track.

Have Standardization
Whether it is policies, procedures, or processes, ensure that they are standardized throughout the organization. You cannot be biased when it comes to policies. If an employee who is working at a remote location gets warning about being lax at work, the same policy should also apply to people working at headquarters as well. Also, if you have the work flow or process documented, it will help remotely-stationed employees to follow the process and hierarchy. This will help in smooth functioning of the work.

Be Accessible
While in an office you can always stop by an employee’s desk and have a chat with him; this may not be possible for a remotely located employee. Schedule a telephone call, or send an email every now and then to inquire about him. Don’t let distance lead to ‘Out of sight, out of mind’. Whenever the employees need your help, you must be available-by phone, email, SMS or video conference. As the employees are located at a distance, it becomes even more important for you to be available for them whenever they need to consult you for flawless completion of tasks.

Help them in Networking
While water cooler conversations are not possible in case of remote employees, it is important that the team members network with each other to improve the strength of the team. This can be done through the company’s social intranet or get-togethers, which should be arranged every few months. You can even set up an intranet team page or build a virtual team room. You can celebrate e-birthdays, share photos, personal information, etc. You can even use webcams to communicate with each other. This will also lead to some informal conversation and bonding among the team members.

Detect and Resolve Problems
Sometimes, you may observe a drop in the performance, lack of motivation, unresponsiveness, dissatisfaction with work, improper tone of communication, etc., in a remote employee. All these are indicators of a problem. You will have to interact with the employee and inquire about his problems related to work. Many times due to rumors, like the employees in headquarters being given a higher raise or better opportunities for career advancement, there is a general dissatisfaction and feeling of injustice among remotely located employees. You will have to speak to them and resolve their problems and issues.

The key to managing remotely-located employees is to engage them. If the employees speak in a different language, ensure that the others talk slowly during the conference call. This will help them to comprehend the language. Be sensitive towards their language preference. Ensure that you are always in touch with remotely located employees. You must make them aware that their contribution is important for the growth of the organization. Give them performance-based rewards, and appreciate their good work. Many times, remote employees feel isolated and lose motivation; you will have to inspire them to work efficiently by using your leadership skills.

iMonitor Found A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing

Posted on June 29th, 2016 in EAM Professional Edition, Employee Monitoring, IMonitor Softwares | Comments Off on iMonitor Found A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing

Ok, I know that it’s not every office that has a decenter in it, but I suspected that I had an employee who was passing off what I will call “trade secrets” from my office to another company. Now, I’m not the person who won’t let employees leave to go work for someone else. I mean, if you want a new job, that’s cool. However, when you are passing information to a competitor hoping for a lucrative job offer, that’s something I cannot abide.

boss-interview-11

Anyways, the office manager and I had ideas about who this “mole” could be, but we were not sure. When everyone went home for the day, we went through and installed the employee monitoring software on every computer in the office and kept constant watch for emails and such from the guilty party to a competitor. Oddly enough, we found that there were many instances of a lack of productivity, but there was nothing that seemed troublesome.

After a few days, we wondered if were just being paranoid. Instead of uninstalling the software, we simply let the software keep working for a little while longer. It was one day that we saw an odd configuration of typing that seemed like it was going in a word document. We figured it was a code, and when we confronted the employee over this alleged “code” the employee confessed.

Unfortunately, we had to let the employee go. At least they had another job waiting for them, but we’re glad that we downloaded the software. Afterwards, we simply let the program go and did not inform the staff. However, with everyone wondering if they were being monitored, productivity improved over the next few weeks. We wanted to catch a “mole”, but we also get more out of our employees at the same time.

We have iMonitor to thank for the advanced performance of our business!

Spy on My Husband’s Computer

Posted on June 23rd, 2016 in Mac Keylogger | Comments Off on Spy on My Husband’s Computer

If, like many out there, you have a If, like many out there, you have a sneaking suspicion that your husband may be up to no good and may be playing around, you might be interested in knowing how you can spy on his text messages?suspicion that your husband may be up to no good and may be playing around, you might be interested in knowing how you can spy on his E-mail and Facebook ?

It’s quite often obvious that a cheating husband would be using his E-mail to contact the other party, whether by making direct Facebook message with them, or more often than not, by Facebook messages that they think are a safe way of communicating because they can be instantly deleted from the cell phone’s history. At the same time, incoming text messages from a secret lover can also be instantly deleted after reading, so even getting hold of his phone is not going to give you any clues about his cheating behavior.

The good news is, due to technological advances in software, there is now a way that you can monitor your husband’s computer – and even his E-mail and Facebook, if you want to go that far.

I’m not going to go into the legal issues, here. Suffice to say that in many countries and states it would be deemed illegal to spy on somebody else’s computer without their permission. I’ll leave it up to you to find out your own particular laws where you live. There are also disclaimers, warnings and further legal advice at the websites of the vendors of these products. Let me just point out that it certainly is not illegal to buy such spying programs – you just need to be careful at how you use them.

That said, the products themselves nowadays are very reliable and come with a variety of functions and applications. Once downloaded to the target computer, you will be able to get information sent to a secure online server from where you can retrieve it all whenever you wish and at your own pace. And you can do this from anywhere in the world using whatever internet-ready device that you have to hand – including your own mobile phone.

You may frequently see that there are a number of Windows devices monitor software, however, you can hardly find a monitor software for Mac.

Fortunately, now we found a Mac Monitoring Software, which can record email, chat, keystrokes, screenshots, website and other all user activities on Mac computer.

Usually, the kinds of things you can monitor vary depending on how much you want to pay. At the lower end, a basic package would give you the limited ability to spy only few things, or have limited data saving time. But Mac Keylogger is different, the different plan just have using time different. The function is all the same.

Another aspect of all of this that you should know about is that once installed on the target Mac, the software that does all of this monitoring for you is completely invisible to the user. He won’t know that it’s there and will have no way of knowing that you now have a secret window on his world that is revealing all his cheating ways to you.

I hope I’ve given a little insight into what these spying programs can do and how they work. Many thousands of cheated on people have found out the truth of the matter by using these techniques, and this has then enabled them to do whatever they need to do about the situation and get on with their lives. If you need to know how to monitor your cheating husband’s E-mail and Facebook, this is probably the cheapest, quickest and most anonymous ways of doing it and it simply works. No more misery, no more guesswork and no more anxiety from wondering what he’s been getting up to all the time – this will help you get to the truth – and FAST!

 

 

Confidential Crisis

Posted on June 21st, 2016 in EAM Professional Edition, Employee Monitoring, IMonitor Softwares | Comments Off on Confidential Crisis

50349ae583c6c364964275

NEW YORK, March 16 (Reuters) – A former Federal Reserve Bank of New York employee was spared prison on Wednesday, disappointing prosecutors who said his leaking of confidential documents to a friend at Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) justified time behind bars.

Jason Gross, 37, was fined $2,000 by U.S. Magistrate Judge Gabriel Gorenstein in Manhattan and sentenced to a year of probation with 200 hours of community service after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of theft of government property.

Prosecutors had sought six to 12 months in prison for Gross, who in November admitted to providing confidential information to Rohit Bansal, his former supervisor at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York who had left to work at Goldman Sachs.

But while Gorenstein said Gross had abused the position of trust he had at the New York Fed, his conviction coupled with the loss of a career had already sent “a powerful message to others.”

The case highlighted the so-called revolving door on Wall Street, in which regulators take new jobs at the banks they formerly oversaw.

The charges were announced after Goldman Sachs agreed in October to a related $50 million settlement with the New York Department of Financial Services.

According to prosecutors and New York regulators, Bansal obtained numerous documents from Gross after joining Goldman Sachs in July 2014.

Those documents included some pertaining to examinations of a bank that Goldman was advising about a potential transaction, regulators said.

Bansal shared some of the documents with others at Goldman, regulators and prosecutors said, telling them in at least one instance, “Please don’t distribute.”

In court, Bruce Barket, Gross’s lawyer, said Gross in providing Bansal the documents thought he was doing a favor for a friend who had already seen them and even created some.

“I don’t think he thought much of it,” Barket said.

Goldman has said that after discovering Bansal obtained the confidential supervisory information, it notified regulators and fired him and a more senior employee who failed to take further action. The New York Fed also fired Gross.

Bansal pleaded guilty in November to theft of government property. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Tuesday.

Illegally disclosing customer’s data or companies’ confidential by employee is happening all the time at companies everywhere. In order to prevent the unethical behavior,  the companies should do the following:

  1. Enhance education on the code of conduct in the business and confidential agreement.
  2. Strengthen security of customer archives and business confidential, preventing from any losing.
  3. The employee monitoring software is necessary, which can prevent confidential crisis and grantee data security. Help companies take steps before the data losing.

The monitoring software is just one means to keep the customer’s data and companies’ confidential safe. The more actions like optimize the management system and improve the staffs’ comprehensive quality are the key point to reduce data leaking happened.

 

7 Easy Ways to Cut Down on Office Print Waste

Posted on June 20th, 2016 in Print Job Monitor | Comments Off on 7 Easy Ways to Cut Down on Office Print Waste

 

printer

Whether you work at an energetic startup with tight margins or some multinational with Fortune 500 credentials, minimizing the amount of paper your department unnecessarily uses will cut into your costs and free up budget room for other things—like Friday morning donuts, for example.

According to data gathered by the Minnesota Office of Environmental Assistance, American office workers use an average of 10,000 sheets of copy paper annually. The EPA estimates that paper and paperboard make up 40 percent of garbage in the US. And while efforts to promote recycling have made great strides, we still have considerable distance to cover.

#1 – Make recycling easy.
Print is inevitable in any office, and not everything you print is something you will store for later use. Copy paper is easy to recycle, but much of it just doesn’t find a way back into circulation because businesses don’t prioritize making recycling easy for workers.

#2 – Copy on both sides of paper.
Set your printers and copiers to use both sides of the page when printing. Doing so instantly cuts the amount of pages used per print job in half. That’s a huge amount over the course of a year or two!

#3 – Reduce document size to fit onto single page.
If you didn’t try this classic hack during college, you spent far too much valuable pizza money on paper and printing, mi amigo. Reformatting your prints to fit two pages side-by-side on the page cuts the amount of paper you use in half, and if you print front-and-back that’s three sheets of paper saved for every one used.

#4 – Check out the first and last page.
When you print articles from the web, a lot of times the printer isn’t automatically optimized for the page and can include links, headers, et cetera. When your print preview comes up, take a look to see that you aren’t printing something you don’t need. While this may only save a page or two on every other article, over time it will help you minimize the amount of paper waste you are producing right out of the printer. Similarly, articles with extensive comment sections can run several extra pages of print you usually don’t need.

#5 – Lighter weight paper.
Lighter paper requires less wood pulp to produce. That means less material investment going into your paper and less work necessary during the recycling process. Your day to day business needs don’t require heavier paper stock in most cases. In those instances where you need to make an impression with your print quality, you can manually load better paper into the printer. This also helps minimize costs, as lighter weight paper is often less expensive. Bonus!

#6 – Proofread before you print.
Noticing a typo on something you just printed isn’t just frustrating—it’s wasteful. When you preview your print, give each page one final run through to make sure no glaring errors will result in waste.

#7 – Print management software.
Medium-sized and larger offices can benefit greatly by using print monitoring software to help regulate cloud printing and track data, and log printed documents Popular management programs like Print Job Monitor expressly designed to limit the amount of paper waste your company uses.
The most important thing about reducing your waste is being conscious about how you manage the resources you can control. Reducing total costs opens up budgetary space to buy more recycled products, as well as things like biodegradable plastic cutlery for the office kitchen and a whole lot more.

 

Did she cheating on me?

Posted on June 17th, 2016 in phone spy | Comments Off on Did she cheating on me?

It’s no secret that relationships are built on trust, but sometimes that is not enough and you need to resort to other methods in an attempt to make sure your wife is completely honest and faithful.

Sometimes, the only way to tell if a wife is cheating is to go behind her back and start spying on her in some shape or form. Back in the day, husbands would hire Private Eyes who would do all the snooping. They’d go out and tail the wife, probably snapping photographs of her in uncompromising positions or tracing her to some surreptitious meeting with another man in a Motel room in the next town. Of course, guys simply don’t have the time to do all that themselves; especially if the wife is being ultra-cautious and making sure that they only do their cheating when he’s otherwise indisposed at work or some other event that he cannot get out of. Cheating wives (and husbands for that matter!) can be sneaky like that. It’s a part and parcel of cheating and it means that finding out the truth can sometimes be really difficult.

There is a story about Edwin and her wife,

”Me and my wife are married with a 2 year old boy. My wife had been texting a guy named Josh that would come see her at work and flirt with her. I told her that I didn’t feel comfortable with it and for her to stop. So she stopped,  at least I thought she did. She put a fingerprint lock on her phone and starting hanging out with a girlfriend of her’s named Elizabeth. So i was wondering, Is there a way to spy on my wife’s messages and calls?  Luckily, I found a Android  phone spy software to help me monitor my wife’s phone. Without get past her fingerprint lock on her phone, I can monitor her messages on my computer or cellphone anytime. And I found that she was texting someone named Nikki. Once I dug deeper, I realized the Nikki person was just a fake contact for josh. I found out that they had been see each other for about 2 months and going the bar frequently. I saw messages between them two and took pictures and showed them to my wife,  and she finally confessed after 2 months of lying.

I was divorced from my wife,  and i got the custody of my daughter.”

We all don’t want to see this kind of tragedy, but we need to face the reality. Something that has occurred in recent times, however, is the trend of spying on mobile phones. A guy put it to me, bluntly, recently like this: “I need to read my wife’s text messages.”

Monitor your kids’ computer?

Posted on June 15th, 2016 in anywheremonitor | Comments Off on Monitor your kids’ computer?

”My son is now 13 and spending a lot of time chatting on the computer, and I want to monitor his usage, including keystroke monitoring. It’s better a remote keylogger software.”

If you search ”monitor kids’ computer” on Google, you may see a bunch of  questions like this. As we all know that the social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr, etc,  has been integrated into the lives of our children. They spend a substantial amount of time on it chatting with their friends. This doesn’t look like a problem at first glance, but it certainly has become a huge nuisance. They succumb to all sorts of bad habits which are hard to let go if not nipped in the bud at early stages.

The spread of cellphones and tablets in the hands of children has complicated matters, giving rise to applications that attract the young and worry parents. Earlier this month, for instance, came revelations that an app designed for flirting, called Skout, had led to three sexual assault cases involving children across the country. Even on Facebook, studies have repeatedly shown, there are plenty of children younger than 13, the minimum age for members, and many of them join with help and supervision from their parents.

Penetrating the surface there are more deeper reasons, explained why social network monitoring is necessity to be monitored.  

Developing Habit of Using Profane Language

When talking to their friends, kids sometimes get out of hand and start using profane language. Because there’s no one to stop them, they keep on doing it and soon it becomes a habit. This same language is then integrated into their regular conversations, which is something that’s going to hurt them for life. It’s up to you to save them from this problem and the only way you can achieve this feat is by monitoring their Facebook conversations. As soon as they start using abusive language with anyone, intervene right away and explain to them how this habit can take a toll on their social standing, and personal and professional relationships. Even if your words don’t get through to them, they’ll definitely fall in line when they realize that their parents are keeping an eye on them.

Online Predators on the Hunt

Kids add people they don’t know and start to converse with them for no apparent reason. These added individuals can turn out to be online predators who are always on the hunt for unsuspecting youngsters. They tell them made up stories to gain their attention, and then they try their very best to arrange a meeting with them. This strategy works a lot more than any parent would feel comfortable with. You certainly don’t want this to happen to your little ones, which is why it is recommended that you seek help from a monitoring solution to keep an eye on their Facebook chats. If you see them talking to someone who seem a bit suspicious, inquire about them, and if your kids don’t know about them, then conduct your own research about them.

The Potent Risk of Sexting
Sexting is another big problem that has been causing a lot of issues these days. Children send provocative messages to each other. Sometimes it goes beyond that and they start sharing revealing pictures of themselves with people they haven’t even met in real life. This trend has really taken off lately as kids add random people, talk to them, get intimate with them, and start to exchange pictures and videos that are inappropriate to say the least. The person they are sexting can, and often does, share the photos and videos on a public platform. This is a very real threat and has been plaguing the current generation since the arrival of Facebook. If you crave safety and privacy of your children, then you must get help from a monitoring tool because that is the only way for you to know if your kid is engaging in sexting. This will put an end to it before things get out of hand.

However, for some parents, they’d rather to discuss with their children. They holds an opinion that  discussion is a good place to start. Installing internet blocking software is one approach. Another is to set family limits — that everyone in the family obeys — for computer or online time. We can not say their choice is wrong, but don’t forget our children they are not babies anymore, we can not control what they want to do. And the children spend half a day at school that we can not keep eye on them anytime.

What we expect, is not forbid our children do something, is we want to know what they are doing, thinking; we want to know more about them. Only we know better about them, we can discuss better to them.

We do need a computer monitoring software for our children. If you are going to keep your child safe from inappropriate content and cheaters browsing the Internet, take advantage of  keylogger software and become more aware of your children computer use.
