Probably the first thing to do is to restrict users from installing
programs. They must log a call so that only authorized programs are
installed (software security policy should be in place and acknowledge).
users who don't adhere to the security policy should be disciplined.

Subject: Risks/dangers of unauthorized web proxy

Hi! I am a new security analyst and have not been exposed to the
technical side of security.

I would like to ask about the risks/dangers from unauthorized proxies.
Some employees in our company   install programs in their workstations
to serve as proxy to other workstations that have not been given
Internet access.

Many thanks!
