What does that have to do with the CS question?

There was nothing hidden from my employer during my separation and pending divorce. The day after my X and I separated, I called my employer and explained, "I left my husband last night with the clothes on my back. He has my laptop and my Blackberry. I'm not innocent here - I've been having an affair. I've tried contacting him for the return of my laptop and blackberry, and my husband will not return them."

Company policy was that an internal security investigation would be conducted IMMEDIATELY when a company resource left the hands of an employee. It was out of my hands for FIVE DAYS. My boss "swept it under the rug". The opportunity to mandate a forensics investigation was valid THEN.

It wasn't until I contacted her regarding a forensics investigation four months later (the SECOND violation - when I discovered the keylogging software), which is when she went to her boss and the legal team. After that discussion took place, her support turned to hostility.

I am fairly sure she got her a$$ chewed for not reporting the first violation.

No one will ever truly know what the reason for my termination was - whether it was the keylogging software (which is information gleaned from an attorney speaking with the legal dept.), the manager failing to follow company policy the FIRST time (which I could see her getting a slap on the wrist and having the ugly task of firing me).

The least of it was personal use of the laptop. There were company policies which allowed for personal use of company resources (email and/or chat). There were even company-licensed versions of these utilities (AOL chat, for example) for this purpose. It was understood with the demands of the position I was in, this was inevitable, and a convenience mechanism put into place by the company to support ongoing contact with family members and/or friends due to the travel requirements of the job. The only written guidelines were that employees were NOT to access pornographic sites, not using the laptop to access financial data or store passwords. But as far as personal use, it was documented as pretty much "fair game", within reason, as long as it was done via the company licensed variant software.

The forensics investigator who was eventually used for an investigation on my X's laptop confirmed, "It's easier for them to fire you than to have to deal with a publicity campaign regarding a security violation."
