Protection of IP using "free" offerings such as Gmail

(John glover) #1

If a user of any of the free services from organizations such as Google or Facebook or similar were ever to truly read and comprehend the terms and conditions of service it is likely that their use of these services would be limited to benign activities. Hopefully it would alert the user NOT to send or transcribe or even create draft messages that contained proprietary or sensitive information of any value that could represent risk or loss.

I am continually surprised at the shocked reaction that I get when this issue is discussed during awareness training.from very senior individuals in positions where national security or corporate negative consequences could result.
