September 29, 2009
 
YOUR ASSIGNMENT TODAY: Counter computer spies.
 
WHY DO IT: There are countless ways to steal data – and sometimes, the people closest to you are the most likely suspects.
 
HOW TO DO IT: First, get management to realize that corporate espionage is a legitimate threat. Then, limit the number of remote access methods to the fewest needed to sustain the company and prevent the use of unapproved solutions. Third, track large data downloads. Finally, change your passwords at regular intervals.
