New York Times
Enron Offers an Unlikely Boost to E-Mail Surveillance
By GINA KOLATA
AS an object of modern surveillance, e-mail is both reassuring and 
troubling. It is a potential treasure trove for investigators
monitoring suspected terrorists and other criminals, but it also 
creates the potential for abuse, by giving businesses and government
agencies an efficient means of monitoring the attitudes and activities 
of employees and citizens.
Now the science of e-mail tracking and analysis has been given a 
unlikely boost by a bitter chapter in the history of corporate
malfeasance - the Enron scandal.

BusinessWeek
A Google Project Pains Publishers
The major presses are raising thorny legal issues with the search 
giant's initiative to digitize the books of the
world's great libraries
Google (GOOG ) can search an astonishing 8 billion Web pages. And yet, 
that's just a drop in the bucket compared to the
knowledge that's stored in the world's libraries but not available 
online.

Employers fail to manage instant messaging, says survey
18/05/2005
One in five people now use instant messaging (IM) at work, but 62% of 
companies are totally unprotected from the threats arising from misuse 
of the communications tool, according to a YouGov survey commissioned 
by solutions provider Akonix Systems.
The survey of more than 2,000 UK consumers reveals that, when left 
unmanaged, instant messaging is increasingly used for inappropriate 
communications.

Bank fined for confidentiality breach
10/05/2005
The Financial Ombudsman Service has awarded a woman £3,000 in 
compensation after a bank’s clerical error led to the woman’s 
whereabouts being discovered by her violent former partner, who 
subsequently assaulted her.
The breach of confidentiality, although minor, had such major 
consequences for the customer that a large award was deemed necessary.
