    HP learns spying isn’t `socially responsible’
    For
    the first time in the seven-year history of the “Top 100 Corporate
    Citizens” list, Hewlett-Packard didn’t make it.The list by Corporate
    Responsibility Officer Magazine, at http://www.thecro.com, includes 15 Silicon
    Valley companies that are ranked as socially responsible based on data
    collected by KLD Research & Analytics.If you think about what the
    pretexting scandal from last year cost HP, this is part of the fallout.
    After all, spying on your own employees and journalists can’t be called
    “socially responsible” in anybody’s book.Here’s what the list makers
    said about HP: “Missing from the list and from the top 10 for the
    first time ever is Hewlett-Packard. Like many companies on the list,
    the Palo Alto, Calif., computer company has an impressive record in
    giving to the community, creating a diverse, fair workplace and
    actively protecting the environment. But last year, HP was charged with
    using illegal methods known as “pretexting,” or pretending to be
    someone else, to investigate leaks of information from the board of
    directors. Patricia Dunn resigned as Chairman of the Board last
    September in the wake of the scandal, and HP paid $14.5 million to
    settle civil charges with the California Attorney General. The company
    is still under investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange
    Commission (SEC), the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal
    Communications Commission.”
