E-mail provides thousands of workers a quick and easy alternative to phone calls and faxes to do business. But many also use it for personal reasons, unaware that employers can read what workers write, monitor how they spend their time and who they’re talking to, and check whether they’re jeopardizing company secrets. A panel talks about email and the privacy and liability issues it has brought to the workplace.

Guests

  • Richard Smith internet security consultant
  • John Jessen CEO of Electronic Evidence Discovery
  • Kerry Stackpole Electronic Messaging Association
  • David Sobel Electronic Privacy Information Center
