The article discusses the issue regarding information theft. Disposal of sensitive information is of serious concern and emphasis on electronic records floating around instead of shredding papers is the least concern. It suggests proper disposal of information by one of three methods such as shredding, degaussing and disintegration.

    Intrusion detection systems (IDS) are usually based on two techniques: misuse- and anomaly detection. Misuse detection relies on signatures; it is precise but can only accommodate already known attacks. Unlike this, anomaly detection models a system's usual behavior and is able to detect new...
