Federal Aviation Administration employees may want to think twice before
they click "send" on personal e-mail messages.
The FAA will begin to monitor its employees' Internet use starting in October
one day per week.
Internet monitoring is consistent with what other government agencies and
the private sector are doing to combat Internet misuse and make decisions
about how to optimize their networks, said Les Dorr, an FAA spokesman.
The 24-hour monitoring periods will be chosen at random, and FAA employees
will review the results. The FAA will buy software to automate the monitoring
this month. FAA does not anticipate blocking any sites, Dorr said.
