Hi,

Our other office is setting up new network, my boss told me that he wants to use Keystroke software/hardware.

Here is what he wants:
1. be able to record Keystrokes
2. can flag out the person is copying files to other locations..............

Doable?  Thx

Doable?  Yes, but only if the boss tells everyone first, and everyone agrees to let this happen.  Otherwise, I'd imagine there would be some pretty big legal issues.

I'd imagine logger software would be easier/cheaper than hardware, but I don't know if the Member Agreement will allow me to help you find some.

I think my boss did not think about this...........

So, it is illegal to install that without telling?  (or you can direct me to some documentation thart I can send it to my boss.)

Thanks

I'm not by any means a lawyer, so I'm not the person to ask.  Here are two links that may get you started, though:

If I were you, I'd check with my company lawyer first.  Or, I'd just go ahead and inform everyone.  Telling everyone does two things:
a) avoids the mess of a situation that occurs when someone finds out they're being logged, and
b) sometimes just the threat of being watched will cause people to stick to the straight and narrow

We have key loggers on many of our PC's what we did is make the user read a computer policy handbook which basically tells them everything they type and look at on the computer is being monitored.

you might want to get something on paper with a John Handcock.
