There are a ton of articles written about this, but I'm hoping for a clear answer from the more informed people (you all). If I surf the net at work, my company can monitor my traffic, right? Is there a way of being able to prevent them from snooping on what sites I'm visiting (i.e. job sites etc) or from determining what my actions are (i.e. applying for jobs from work). I know, the best thing to do is do this stuff from home, but I'm using the above as examples. Thanks! By the way, I use portable software so no search history is saved on my local machine at work, but that doesn't cure the problem of them being able to see what sites I access. If I am logged in the network, then I assume something like Tor isn't going to help because I'm still launching the connection from my work server.
