President and CEO, Pilot Power Systems, Valrico, Fla.

A Question Of Ethics
Technicians' looking into the files on a customer's computer is an ethical issue. The person whose computer was invaded was a lawyer. Who knows what confidential materials may have been stored in his files? If we encourage technicians to look into the files of computers entrusted to them, lawyers, doctors, and others who keep confidential information will be confronted with an ethical dilemma when they experience technical problems.

Don't Get Too Comfortable
I go by the rule that thinking that you're secure in your job can hurt you ("Critical Path," April 21, p. 36). I always ensure that I'm learning something new. I also make sure that I'm needed and people notice when I'm on vacation.
Tim Martin
Information Assurance Manager, Defense Enterprise Computing Center, Ogden, Utah
