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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

'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.Was this review helpful?
