hh.ru conducted a study of restrictions on Internet surfing in the workplace

According to a survey conducted by hh.ru, half of Russians are limited to Internet access at work.

89% of respondents have closed social networks and blogs.
59% have sites with “adult” content.
54% have file sharing services, including p2p networks.
41% of employers blocking instant messengers.
In 32% of cases, photo sites and video hosting sites are closed.
20% of companies prohibit open mail systems and job sites.

At the same time, it turns out, 93% of respondents are not particularly worried about the internal rules for visiting the Network at the company. Although 37% of them still experience discomfort from this in their professional activities, more than half do not pay attention to this at all.

Despite the initiatives of employers, 43% of respondents found ways to bypass the corporate information security system. A third of them use technical tools based on wireless Internet and proxy servers, others (not many, 12%) agreed with system administrators.
“Whether such a restrictive information policy is effective or not, but 92% of employees do not give out corporate secrets over the network. Nevertheless, there are some reasons to think - 6% “confused” confidential content into the Network a couple of times, and 2% do it all the time, they say in hh.ru. “Only 5% consider a fully open Internet as an absolute necessity for work, but the majority do not pay attention to it at all in employment.”
