RE: How to check an Executive's notebook

Trapping the traffic would be the same as retrieving data from the notebook
in their eyes.

Before doing anything like this you need to let this person know exactly
what you're going to be doing and get their sign off on it.

Subject: How to check an Executive's notebook

Hi

I have a client who is a very high powered Executive and he asked me to
check 
his notebook regarding security etc.
Actually this would be any easy task but he is not willing to hand over his 
notebook to me and I am not allowed to retrieve any data from it.

Well how can you assess such a notebook and also the person's behaviour 
regarding security (e.g. reading his private email via smtp and the like)?

The only idea I found so far is to re-direct the notebook's Internet traffic

through a proxy and then I can examine this traffic and give him some
advice.

Any other ideas are very welcomed.

Mike
