New security tool alerts your employer if you're a complainer1/30/2013
The next time you want to gripe to a co-worker about your boss, avoid the computer and go out for coffee. IBM has unveiled a new security tool that will strike fear into the hearts of anyone who's ever complained about their job, which is to say everyone who's ever had a job. The tool uses Big Data to scan emails, financial transactions, Web visits and social media activity to help companies root out "disgruntled" employees who may leak secrets. The tool can even spot an employee who expresses something upbeat to a manager and portrays things differently to a peer, parsing language patterns to determine if the sentiment is positive, negative or neutral. Big Data, meet Big Brother. [Source]
