Over the last twenty years, the workplace has been the beneficiary (?) of a vast number of technological advances. This has made it much easier to not only amass information, but to sort, structure and "play" with it. But one of the major downsides of this technological advance has been that a recalcitrant employee, or an employee who is leaving for a competitor, now has a much easier time to appropriate confidential information (trade secrets, customer or client lists, pricing information or other sensitive data); harass co-workers; spend the day looking at some of the "more interesting" Internet sites (i.e. pornography); get involved in gambling; or engage in other nefarious conduct.
