Who’s watching you?

We all know about NSA’s surveillance.  And we know Netflix and Amazon track stuff, and Google does what it does.  But do you give any thought to who is watching what you’re looking at on the ‘net for your employer?

“Hedge Funds Learn Secrets Not So Safe,” Wall Street Journal, January 26, 2015 C1.  Banks and brokerages do research reports and post them on Bloomberg’s site.  Bloomberg informs the banks/brokerages who’s accessing those reports – not just the firm whose accessing them, but the person.  So can the banks and brokerages know who at a hedge fund is looking to target a specific firm?

Well, at least the banks and brokerages aren’t selling that information to others.

If you’re the hedge fund, how do you protect yourself?  Does this affect your strategy?
