Overview

For business owners, managers, and IT staff interested in learning how to effectively and ethically monitor and influence workplace behavior, this guide is a roadmap to ensuring security without risking employee privacy or trust. The misuse of information systems by wired workers—either through error or by intent—is discussed in detail, as are possible results such as leaked or corrupted data, crippled networks, lost productivity, legal problems, or public embarrassment. This analysis of an extensive four-year research project conducted by the authors covers not only a range of security solutions for at-risk organizations but also the perceptions and attitudes of employees toward workplace surveillance.

    Very balanced

    I was expecting a pro-management book that basically said how to do more surveillance without getting caught by employees. But this book takes into account the employees point of view. Also has a great non-technical description of information security concepts. I'm going to buy another copy for my boss.

    The results of a four-year research project

    'The Visible Employee' presents the results of a four-year research project concerning prevailing workplace security measures and their side effects. On the one hand, deliberate or accidental employee misuse of information systems can cause havoc on the other, too much monitoring and surveillance of employees can provoke conflict on all levels of hierarchy and cause drag on the efficiency of a business. Chapters present the perspectives of Information Technology professionals, managerial perspectives, employee perspectives, the pros and cons of different approaches to the quandary of balancing security against efficiency, and much more. Numerous appendices from employee interview protocol to a recommended password policy ('never use a dictionary word for a password' or 'never send a password using email') and an index round out this valuable guide to businesses trying to successfully compete in a rapidly evolving and interconnected world.
