Password Manager

By LivingHell ·
I have a manager on the network and have been told not to restrict what he can do on his laptop (he's a mate of the Directors!). As a result he has installed a load of his own software on it which I am far from comfortable about. Including Norton Password Manager. He has installed his own wireless network card for his home network. I am concerned about security given he is accessing the internet with his laptop from home but has this password manager s/w too - what is the risk? am I worrying needlessly?

You might need to keep an eye out

But if you have a say over him, you can just ask him to uninstall unnecessary software.

Security Incidents

by BFilmFan In reply to Password Manager

When one happens, you can politely report to the directors of the company what has happened and they can deal with the reprecussions as they approved this individual having administrative control of the laptop.

Passing the issue to management making the decision and having them squirm later when questioned by investigators is called "The Michael Brown Effect."
