Great Britain's domestic intelligence service, MI5, has issued a list of top tips for dealing with terrorist threats on a new Web site for businesses. This is the first time the intelligence service has publicly offered this kind of advice, which is traditionally confined to government departments. The Web site includes the management of threats from staff insiders, who help facilitate attacks from outside parties. The motivation of disaffected individuals includes personal gain, boredom, revenge, or sympathy with some external cause, according to the security services.
