Shopping on the Job

If you were wondering why nothing seems to be getting done around the office, a recent survey by ISACA, a professional IT association, could have the answer.

Apparently, a lot of employees will be shopping.  According to the survey, Shopping on the Job: Online Holiday Shopping and Workplace Internet Safety, an average employee may be spending almost 2 full working days (14.4 hours) holiday shopping from a work computer.  Ten percent of those surveyed indicated they may spend up to 30 hours.

Besides wasting time and decreasing productivity, such widespread shopping also opens the door to viruses, spam, and phishing attacks.
