The weak link of the company: unfaithful employees

dipendinfedeliIt’s one of the greatest dangers in companies both big and small. Loyal, disciplined and educated employees, but that in front of a good sum of money or a prestigious position can sell information and confidential data.

According to a recent research, behind the office desk, 3 of 5 they shop online or go to the website of their bank, while half “attended” social networks. A risky behavior, so businesses become vulnerable for what concerns the safety online. The “perpetrators” would be the most loyal employees, liabilities and “cynical bored”, the real weak link in the chain of IT security.

640 of 1000 interviewees are convinced that it’s the company to have “vaccinated” them as bugs and by other web hazards. One in three even thinks that security is equivalent to less innovation. The result? Many surfers without protection, and a company boat at risk.
But it would be enough to implement control systems for computers that invisibly protect companies from undercover criminals . Because they are often the same companies to protect employees from any risk, but not the opposite.

“Pink” bullying, the solution of Julia’s parents

bullismo-femminile
If they are victims or perpetrators it’s not important. Parents need to know it. They have the duty as well as the right, to inform themselves. Bullying is more and more at the center of public attention. According to a survey of the Society of Pediatrics, 46% of the kids saw bullying episodes, and more than one in three, 34% of them has suffered it directly or through a friend victim. The news is the emerging female bullying.
“Pink” bullying is less direct, prefers subtle behaviors, even sharper: innuendo, gossip, public ridicule, provocative text messages. The victims are girls with “something less” for bully and her court. It’s a persecutory behavior less evident that usually lasts a long time before being discovered. It’s no coincidence that cyberbullying, spreading on the web, (persecution of the victim through his/her profile on a social network, dissemination of images disparaging or intimate…), doubly interests the girls than their peers, both as victims and as authors. There is also female actions with direct physical aggression, as recently has appeared many times on TV.

The signals that lead to the suspicion that their child is being bullied are already known: isolation, apathy, anger, depression. But these behaviours can really provide the answers? Are not of this opinion, the parents of Julia, 13 year old girl, dismayed before the convocation of the school principal because her daughter would have led repeated abuse against a classmate, Aurora, “guilty” of having asked to take part of the club of friends, led by Julia, who has put in place “evidences of initiation” for Aurora: use her as a slave-girl, force her to eat candy already licked, obligate her to do their homework, force her to lie to teachers and parents…Aurora, destroyed by this situation, confessed everything to the teacher and so began another story that involves families and the school.
In addition to the wonder and the inability to devise punishments, Julia’s parents decided to leave no more escape to the little bully. They installed a spy software on her cell phone with which they can control everything she makes: phone conversations and text messages, environmental listening and monitoring her position real time. They also put under control her online movements through monitoring tools for PC.

These measures are essential alongside to the dialogue and the search for an intimate relationship with the teenagers, often difficult. The interventions are needed both for victims and for the bullies that risk of being given a social label as well as to degenerate over time. But they are even more necessary in the context of prevention and protection of their children.

One in three people spying on partner’s emails

spiarepcpartnerFailure log-out, weak passwords, but above all small monitoring tools. This is what facilitates the control of e-mail of the partner. According to a Google search, carried out on a sample of 2,000 people, one in three people have peeked at least once in the e-mail of the partner. Mail, documents and informations are often under the magnifying glass of partners suspicious.

The lack of password security is one of the “help” to get access to the partner’s cyber world. It appears that 10% of users choose the name of his dog or cat for password, while 8% use the word “password”. 6% of people leave the password pinned on a post-it next to the PC, 13% claim to be entered in an account of others, guessing the password, taking advantage of the failure to log out from a session or with monitoring tools. Among these, a third (33%) entered into the partner’s, mostly men, and almost one-fifth that of ex (17%), mainly women. One in ten has, however, tried to guess the password of a work colleague.

11% say that they use a significant date as password, such as wedding anniversary, while 11% use the date of birth of a close relative. 62% change the password only when it becomes necessary, only 24% do it regularly, while 16% say they always use the same password.

Generally, women are more inclined to share their password with partners. More than half of respondents write their passwords somewhere: a diary, a file on the PC, the phone, a post-it.

If all this doesn’t happen, no fear. The partners more smart bought small devices such as key hunters and key records that, in discreet manner, allow you to monitor everything that is typed on the PC keyboard, including passwords and email.

Often who decide to control the partner, already has a strong motivation to do it: suspicion of betrayal or some unclear affair. So it becomes strictly necessary to check out some doubt and uncertainties, better do it with reliable tools.

“I’m the administrator of a big company operating in the production of electronic components, and about 9 months ago I was the victim of a case of infidelity company.

I contacted Endoacustica Europe because many of my customers had suspended the request of supply for some time, without give convincing reasons and responding in evasive manner to any requests of explainations. With the same I had an exclusive supply contract for components, so I began to suspect that there was a hypothetical company, in the same field, which had made contact with the customers of my company. To be honest, I didn’t suspect of my employees.

I then decided to see what was happening through micro cameras recommended by the Endoacustica Europe’s team in order to unmask the presumed crime and document the investigation with tangible evidence. The hidden cameras have fulfilled my expectations.
I placed the tools in different places, working and recreational, and I monitored the incoming and outgoing phone calls. Then, I waited. Through some internal telephone calls, I understood that two employees of my company had started their own business.

I’ve narrowed the inquiry field and I easily picked up numerous evidence about the customers who have strayed from my company. They have been (incorrectly) stolen from the rival company by the two disloyal employees.
With the evidence gathered I was able to start criminal proceedings against my former employees, and I’m going to have a substantial financial compensation. Thank you very much for your help, I’d be on the brink of bankruptcy if I hadn’t acted in time and with the right tools!”.

13-year-old victim beaten outside school for stealing the boyfriend of a peer

bullismo_2Someone claims that it’s better that teenagers are in total freedom of thought and action, others emphasize strong controls. As often happens, the truth lies in the middle. If it’s true that the identity creation requires autonomy, is also true that “some advices” are necessary.

In recent years, most of the relationships between the teenagers happens via internet and social networks, so it’s necessary to control the use of the pc. It would be optimal to monitor the behaviors of their sons “at distance”, so to know what they do and who they interact with, without they know it, leaving them free to express themselves, but away from dangers. Very used tools are key logger or key hunter, small devices by Endoacustica, that allow you to know every detail typed on the computer keyboard.

With the use of this type of tools, many “accidents” would have been avoided. Few weeks ago it appears the news of a young girl violently beaten out of school for having “stolen the boyfriend” of a peer. The incident occurred near to the school and wasn’t unexpected by the victim. Months of threats and harassments via Facebook led to the beating of the adolescent.

Before the aggression, three girls, two thirteen and one fifteen, have snatched the phone to the victim with whom they have sent a text message to her mother to tell her to don’t pick her up from the school. Then, the thirteen year old was dragged into a nearby car park, thrown to the ground, kicked and punched. To save her, the father of another pupil, that has stopped the beating. The girl was brought over to the ER and parents have complained.

Probably take preventive action is the best form of justice that we can be expected.

Russian babysitter beats nine-month-old baby

babysitterorcoShocking images captured by a hidden camera of savage beatings against a little child by a Russian babysitter. This video that shows unequivocally the mistreatment of the nanny is much debated. According to the same 55-year old, to rise her rage were the incessant screams of the child that prevented her from enjoying her favorite show on TV.

The video was made in Krasnoyarsk, a town in central Siberian Russia. The family had grown suspicious after repeatedly returning home to find the child crying. So the parents decided to monitor the attitude of the woman during work hours through a miniature camera installed in the house.

In the footage the nanny can be seen roughly handling the child before slapping it around the head. She then kicks the child in the back before putting a blanket over the top of the child in an attempt to keep it quiet. To shock is above all the inhuman brutality with which she rails against the baby.

When the police captued her, the 55-year-old woman said that the parents spoiled the kid too much and that  he was constantly crying and asking to be held in arms. Therefore, her attitude would be part of a kind of “educational therapy”, a form of protection very little human.

Unfortunately, this kind of events have taken place recently in different parts of Europe and the United States. The need to put the children in the care of someone during the hours of work, often leads to hire as babysitter unknown people who comes to the door showing ad hoc curriculum and extolling decades of experience in the field.

Now, starting from the many shocking news, parents in addition to pay all the attention in the choice of the nanny, using more and more surveillance tools, such as the micro camera used by Russian parents.

The ideal device is, in most cases, the DVR All in One, a micro audio and video recorder that can be installed almost anywhere, even in electrical sockets or toys. In this way you will not raise any suspicion, and you can take action to ensure the children safety.
