Remember, no matter how secure the network connection is, someone who has access to the machine itself -- with a very few exceptions -- *can* extract data from it.

And if the machine belongs to your employers, they have every right to access it. And to say what it may and may not be used for.

The way to get real security is to have your own machine, to keep it physically secure, *AND* to apply appropriate network security practices.

(I've seen someone fired on the spot for abusing one of the company's machines. Any activity which might reflect poorly on the company can trigger that kind of response. And of course any evidence that you're goofing off when you should be working may affect your evaluation. Do you really want to play You Bet Your Job?)

You should be safe from anyone other than a determined hacker with deliberate intent to access this information. Are you very suspicious about your colleagues?

They shouldn't be able to. Basic system security should protect you. But you could avoid using private systems at work, that's your surest way of being safe. As a company-system you'll be restricted as to what you can do with it.

Use a good firewall and that should prevent it unless you let them in.
