The Plugged-In Mailbox
Email Uses and Misuses


  • Also part of the Information/Computer Security Video Library

    This powerful best-seller uses realistic scenarios to dramatize proper use vs. misuse of email and the Internet for all employees, at every level, and vividly shows the consequences of non-compliance.

    Training Topics:

  • E-mail derailed—effective vs. ineffective writing: clogging e-mail bandwidth with needless or poorly constructed messages; writing in clear, businesslike language; editing, proof-reading, and fact-checking before hitting “send”; over-use of “high priority”
  • Nothing Personal—email is not “private property:” email messages are property of the organization; no expectation of personal privacy for email
  • "Virtual" Food Fights: email used to argue emotional issues or personal conflicts, spreading rumors, errors
  • "X"-mail: misuse of office systems to browse, download, or circulate sexual, racial, political, or religious material
  • Sensitive email—handle with care: unauthorized use of another e-mail user's ID; keeping network access codes secure; protecting confidential information
  • Digital discovery—“E” is for evidence: email seized as evidence during discovery; thinking defensively before writing or sending; the value of proofing and fact-checking; following records retention and deletion guidelines

    This information-packed, story-based program uses dramatized vignettes to illustrate important differences between using and misusing email and the Internet. An urgent email about a large shipment lost in a train wreck fails to alert anyone at the home office. An intranet bookmaking scheme is uncovered. Downloading and forwarding sexually explicit material from the Internet brings sexual harassment charges to individuals and the organization. Trade secrets are leaked. Carelessly worded email fuels an antitrust case. And more.
