Russian Software Monitors Office Cellphones

InfoWatch, a company owned by Natalya Kasperskaya, the former wife of Russian cyber security guru, Evgeny Kaspersky, has developed a solution for monitoring employees’ mobile phone conversations at work.
The monitoring device already has a prototype. Russian government officials, however, say this system may be used only with an employee’s consent.  Otherwise, it can be considered a violation of the constitutional right to communication privacy, East-West News reports.
Labor contracts will have to include a “clause whereby the employee voluntarily gives to his employer the right to monitor, with a special device, his correspondence, telephone calls, whether or not he drinks, eats, and other things,” explained Russian Communications Minister Nikolai Nikiforov in an interview with RBC Daily newspaper.
Russia's State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin is concerned that abuse is still possible even with an employee’s consent.
Kasperskaya thinks the use of the system does not violate the law.
“All voice traffic transcribed into text will be analyzed by a machine, without human participation and without a third party knowing the content,” Kasperskaya told Kommersant newspaper.
