Keystroke Cops

Many companies also need to monitor the way employees interact with data to ensure adherence to policies for compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley and other regulations. “We monitor key corporate financial systems to ensure there is no inappropriate activity,” says Anne Rogers, director of information safeguards for Waste Management, a $12.5 billion publicly held trash services provider. The company also uses Web filtering software to block access to sites that contain inappropriate material.

Rogers says her job is not made easier by the fact that most of the company’s 56,000 employees (such as the garbage collectors) do not use computers. She says that “while only about one-third of our employees work on the computer systems,” a number of factors—network and application configurations, the number of company locations, variations in user roles and compliance requirements among them—drive the information access and protection workload.
