He states that the CSI/FBI surveys suggest that wiretapping is rare. Should
companies still be concerned with Wiretapping?

There's no reason to fear legal wiretaps, unless you're doing something that
makes them want to get a wiretap warrant.

Things you *do* need to fear:

1) Illegal wiretaps, warrantless wiretaps, and wholesale hoovering of your
network data just because one of your employees is the wrong color or wrong
political party, or just because they are worried about "terrorists".

2) Abuse of the legally mandated CALEA infrastructure by a hacker.
