Cyberveillance

Definition - What does Cyberveillance mean?

Cyberveillance refers to monitoring all of an employee's computer activity both online and offline. This is done to decrease or eliminate instances of cyberloafing, where employees use their Internet access during working hours for personal use or otherwise use their computers for personal activities.

Techopedia explains Cyberveillance

Cyberveillance allows managers to watch an employee’s file changes, website visits, use of email, keystrokes and literally every movement on the computer screen.

Studies consistently show that a significant amount of the money spent by corporations on Internet access is wasted by employees doing nonwork activities on office computers.

Some employers also install proxy servers to prevent access to sites and services such as instant messaging, chat or Internet gambling.
