This question already has an answer here:
I sent an excel file over Hotmail to another hotmail account on my work computer around 5 months ago. This email has since been deleted by the sender and the receiver. Is it possible for my employer to go back and retrieve the email and file?
A few extra things to note:
- the website was protected by https
- when looking at the certificate authority of the browser it all looked legitimate (i.e. no mention of 'THECOMPANY - VA).
If my employer isn't using MITM would it be possible for them to retrieve it?
Even though the certificate authority looked legit, is it still possible there's a MITM used and if there is one used how easy would it be for them to go back and retrieve the file?
Edit: this is not a general quesion on whether a company can monitor employees on their server, it's a specific question on whether it's likely a MITM is used and if a file sent over personal email from months previous can be retrieved or is sitting on the server at all. Also to clarify the size of the company is around 600 people.
