Significance of Computer Monitoring Software

By: Nawaz Shahzad

Monitoring software is something for your own use. It monitors and provides information to you. You cannot have a surveillance on yourself (because the action is not hidden) but you can monitor yourself. Spyware accumulates information and reports it to someone "other" than you. Monitoring your own use of your resources is not spying. Maybe if you are afflicted with multiple personalities then you can claim You as Nawaz was spying on you as Zafar but only

when you as Julia were asleep. Monitoring and retrieving information about someone else's use of their resources, especially without them knowing about them, is spying.

There are lots of keyloggers available; just do a web search (notice how I refrained from telling you to use Google / Yahoo?). As for the rest, if you are using Windows, there are auditing tools available with Windows Server and with Novell Netware, or you could have each workstation report to a logging server. It would be wise to reveiw your office policies before instituting any of these, especially keystroke loggers, as there are some significant privacy issues here.
