The Internet is Not Private

When are people going to learn that nothing that is done on the internet is private?  I deal with people’s interactions with computer systems every day and it amazes me when we confront someone about an unethical/illegal thing that they have done and they are amazed we have proof.  

When you leave information on systems that you do not own – whether they be public resources or company owned resources – you have no reasonable expectation of privacy.  Surprisingly few people seem to think about this.
