Does your boss read your mail? Should he?

According to a recent proofpoint survey, 36% of all U.S. companies emply staff whose job it is to monitor the email of their employees. Yes, that means snooping through outgoing mail to see if you’re using your email for evil. A further 26.5% say that they will employ such staff in the future.

There are more scary numbers in that survey. It’s another item in a long list of things that make me feel I can never work in that country. I’ve got to stay in Europe, where snooping on email is illegal (well, in some countries at least – not in Denmark, apparently).
