Your boss could be spying on you right now and here's how

Covert surveillance has come out of the shadows of late.

The chief of the CIA had his private emails published, TalkTalk was held to ransom by a mysterious hacker (possibly a 15-year-old boy), and then there was the small matter of a Bond film - focusing on the murky world of international surveillance. 

But it's not just the anonymous internet hackers who are at it - a survey from the America Management Association as many as 43 percent of US employers 'monitor' their employees. As such, we wanted to know how easy it is for figures like your boss to spy on you - and the tools available to help keep your privacy private.

Here are 10 surveillance gadgets and their privacy counterparts you might want to familiarise yourself with.
