Silicon Alley Showdown: Experts Debate Porn, Privacy and Internet Abuse

Apr 11, 2001, 01:00 ET from Websense, Inc.

    WHAT:      The second-annual eProductivity Summit is a spirited debate on
                privacy, Internet addiction and security in the workplace.
                A new survey on employee Internet use and abuse will also be
                released.
 
     WHY:       Firings and lawsuits resulting from employee Internet misuse
                are on the rise -- but managing employees on the Web isn't
                black and white (see details below).  The summit will explore
                the complex issues surrounding workplace Internet use and
                abuse.
 
     WHO:       -- Christopher M. Kelley, analyst, Forrester Research
                -- Dr. David Greenfield, founder and CEO, Center for Internet
                   Studies
                -- Lewis Maltby, president, National Work Rights Institute
                -- Maggie Jackson, journalist and author, Associated Press
                -- Scott Davis, Internet security specialist, T. Rowe Price
 
     WHEN:      Wednesday, April 11, 2001, 4 p.m. - 6 p.m.
                Cocktail reception, dinner catered by Abigail Kirsch and live
                music immediately following.
 
     WHERE:     The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers, New York City
 
     DETAILS:   The event is free to media and invited guests.  Panelists will
                be available for comment following the debate.  Findings from
                the new survey to be unveiled include:
 
                -- 35 percent of companies have fired one or more employees for
                   misuse of the Internet at work.
                -- 5 percent of small businesses have faced lawsuits related to
                   Internet misuse.
                -- 71 percent of companies block pornography at work
                   (up from 50 percent last year).
