Keylogger in a corporate environment

Post Posted: Apr 02, 19 22:42

What is the legality of using a keylogger against corporate endusers? I was asked to research and purchase a hardware and software keylogger. I have my reservation about it however not exactly sure. What do you think or what is the law?

Way too vague without much more information.

I think it entirely depends on your internal policies. Some places are very free in the sense they put a lot of trust in their employees and have limited access. Others, are quite open about the fact you have very little privacy and if you are using work equipment during work time, expect that someone can and will view/question it.

I'm sure there would be some legality issues if it went beyond internal policies but there is sometimes a fine line between the two.

Depends primarily on local legislation, but for the private sector, the 2 most important keywords here are proportionality and subsidiarity.

Cheers,
