Our workforce seems to think its ok to stream the radio via their PC’s at work. The web filter doesn’t block them doing this. It is perceived as a no risk issue but I just wanted to double check any potential issues and perhaps cost implications on allowing this. Can anyone explain any risks/issues (no matter how far fetched) in allowing users to abuse the Internet to stream radio from their PC, could their be any adverse affects if say 200 people each day were doing so, or are we being a bit petty in that it’s a no risk issue? You’ll have to keep your answers management friendly. I am more after the technical issues/risks than the “they shouldn’t listen to the radio when they should be working” type issues.
