In either case, any browsing I do through the remote connection on my home computer will be recorded by my home ISP and not the work network right? The work network will just see it as some connection to a google server/other computer?

Don't want to get in trouble at work for browsing say "social media" as long as I'm doing it directly from my home computer over a remote connection from work?

lol, just need to double check. biggrin.gif

1) Your workplace should have a VPN Option available ( hopefully they do)
2) If you VPN to your work (depending of the client and conection type) it will get log in your works web filtering. (Trust em on this one), I had to report a person for navigating to porn in his home computer, he got fired.
3) No matter what software you use your ISP will be able to log your data at their discretion. Make sure the traffic is encrypted that way all they see is giberrish insted of work content
4) What ever software you use make sure you read the end user license agreement.
5) If your work as a network security department ask permision prior to doing this, you can get fired if caught, most network access policy on the corporate enviornment restrict unathorize use. Its on one of those papers you sign that nobody reads.

IF you have any Q's ask me

As someone who worked in HR for 6 years before moving to IT, I can safely say that as long as you ask your supervisor, boss, manager or HR manager that it is ok then go for it. As long as you get the green light you'll be fine. Now obviously that is almost never the case, but the cases where I have seen that involved instant dismissal were those where employees were just blatantly streaming porn or downloading many full pirated movies. In all other instances warnings have been issued. This for Australia of course and it's my understanding that the US is much stricter.

In any case, as has already been repeated many times, don't violate your company contract thumb.gif

IT security has changed ALOT in the last two years. And it varies alot in company by company (here in the states) depending on the national standars example HIPAA, PCI, among others.

Like you said verbal warning, written warning for social media , or streaming apps. lay off immediatley if porn, child porn (fired + jail), drugs or violence incitation (warning/fire).

The proper way is to contact the companies helpdesk and they most likely provide you a guide map (if they know what your talking about), remember your boss sometimes is not up to date with all the company policies, and sadly i've seen HR break policies more than regular users, i call it play it safe and go directly to the source and ask the netops people. get the details in writting (to cover yourself)
