Keystroke recorders literally record every key that you type on your keyboard, including the DELETE key--the whole sequence, from typing to the deletion, can be played back as if you were doing it again, keystroke by keystroke! Your company memos, email to your colleagues, even your PASSWORDS!
If a keystroke recorder is in use at your workplace, NEVER USE YOUR PASSWORDS TO YOUR PERSONAL EMAIL OR ENCRYPTION KEYS! If you do, you risk compromising the integrity of your own personal security and privacy. No amount of encryption can protect you from a keystroke recorder, nor can the deletion of files, even if they are securely erased!
