According to some new research - a third of IT staff at UK firms take a sneaky peek at confidential data such as salary details, personal emails and confidential information.
Quite a worrying thought - especially as a lot of people spend all the working week in the office and just cannot help having to send the odd personal email to sort out issues during office hours.
However it is human nature to be nosey and to try and find out everything that is going on - even if it is people you don't even know.
So next time you send a bitchy email about one of your work colleagues- watch out, because you never know who is actually going to read it.
