e-mail and privacy

First of all, there isn’t privacy.  If you’re in the woods and have a clear visibility of (say) 200 feet, you’ve got a fair chance.  There is equipment that will work better that’s been on the market for nearly 40 years.  From what I read the upper limit is probably about a thousand feet, given little breeze and no abrupt thermal declines or inclines.  That’s without electronic equipment.  That means you take your spy out in the boonies to chat.  Visibility is a real problem there by the bye.

 

Now comes the phone and later e-mail.  This one has me interested because more keeps coming out.  He went back to the office and got stuff and e-mailed it to himself?…eh.  This is the guy that stole company contacts under a three-year non-competition contract.

 

Back to the main subject, which the link should clue you on.  First of all, assume the boss is reading what you read at work, and what you type.  Secondly, don’t assume keyloggers don’t give undisclosed access to things you would like to assume private.  They aren’t private, because the keyloggers do.  A password used at work is a password stored at work.  They’re even required to keep records just as do ISPs.  At this point regular telephony (landline type) is safer than any other method.  Used in combination with a book code it would of course be unbreakable.

P.S.  No, I didn’t get “book code” from a modern movie.  Just make sure you have the same print edition.

Interesting when prejudice…makes it obvious that “_____rage” widens again: sideline rage
