Magnificent Discretion

This four-part video takes a light-hearted look at some common-sense precautions that all information workers should take during the course of their daily routines.

For example, the first segment urges personnel to be discreet about their professional identities when participating in Internet chat forums at home. "Kyle," whom the video describes as somebody who is passionate about his work and often takes it home, "knows that others can build a profile of him and his interests based on his Web surfing patterns."

In another segment called "Bits and Pieces," information workers are warned that "spies will try almost anything in pursuit of information" and that "even the most bumbling and inept spy can achieve success by accessing the desired information on a computer." Bits and pieces of information, the video warns, can be used to build a more in-depth picture of sensitive information.
