A perspective on the theft of confidential documents by former employee at Ford.

April 09, 2010 Added by:Peter Abatan

When I read that a former Ford product engineer had stolen over 4000 confidential documents containing trade secrets from his former employer, I began to wonder how many companies out there are as vulnerable to the same degree as Ford. Fortunately for Ford this employee got caught, but it remains unknown how many employees have successfully got away without Ford’s knowledge?

Data Security - It's a responsibility, not an option...

April 07, 2010 Added by:Ian Barrs

"We need to talk about security, it's becoming an issue." This is a line that would draw a blank on many a CEOs face, even today. "We've got strong password policies, and no-one's allowed to use USBs", the CEO may burble. If that's your last line of defence, and you merely trust people to follow the rules, you're heading for trouble.

Why bother with PGP ...???

April 04, 2010 Added by:K S Abhiraj

The very nature of email communication makes it perfect for spying and tapping. Imagine all the emails that fly across the Atlantic Ocean. Every single one of them could be tapped without you even noticing it. Of course, thinking that someone will sit and read every single one of them is preposterous - but the "problem" is that nobody has to.

Cyber Crime & Terrorism Take a Dangerous Turn

March 24, 2010 Added by:Jenni Hesterman

Most would agree that globalization, fed by technological advances in the information system and telecommunications realms, has overwhelmingly been a "good thing". Our world is connected like never before, and those formerly isolated are now part of the landscape, able to access critical medical information, tap educational resources and answer almost any question in two clicks.
