E-Gold's Chairman Spoke Out Against Cybercrime, Until He Got Caught
Commentary  |  4/30/2007  |

The latest news to add to the list of online perils to be paranoid about comes courtesy of the Washington Post. Virus writers apparently have a new scheme for distributing malicious code: purchasing popular Google keywords and publishing ads that purport to lead users to legitimate Websites. Some of the keywords the tricksters bought include "BBB" (for Better Business Bureau) and "Cars.com."
Pop Quiz: Who's Got Access To The Government's Student Loan Data?
Commentary  |  4/20/2007  | 
It wouldn't surprise me if Sen. Edward ("Ted") Kennedy--well, his staff, really--had a bad case of writer's cramp.

Do you know where your paper customer records are? Better yet, does the state attorney general's office know? As both RadioShack and CVS/Caremark Corp. have found out this year, being in control of the former situation is so much better than ceding control in the latter.

Commentary  |  4/6/2007  | 
Wal-Mart always seems to be in the news for one reason or another. Supporters tout its pioneering marketing model and groundbreaking success in offering low-cost goods to consumers and keeping operational costs low.

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
