Topic: War On Terrorism

TOPIC: The Department of Homeland Security unintentionally posted a warning on a government Web site Monday that Chinese hacker groups are planning distributed denial-of-service attacks on U.S.- and U.K.-based Web sites to protest the war in Iraq, according to an article in The Washington Post. The department received the information by monitoring an online meeting between the hackers. Although government and industry officials were alerted, the department's spokesman said the information was sensitive and was mistakenly posted on the home page of the National Infrastructure Protection Center. The warning has since been removed.

Tari Schreider is the director of security practice of Extreme Logic. The company aids clients in the areas of extensive security planning, rigorous implementation, strategic security assessments, risk evaluation, vulnerability testing, and disaster recovery capability, along with policies and procedures that maintain tight reins on corporate information assets. Tari's practice is based on three fundamental truths of security: One security initiatives demand a business orientation; Two, mitigating threat requires the protection of applications from the inside out; and Three, effective security requires the orchestration of people, process, and technology. Too often, these tenets of security are ignored in pursuit of a technology silver bullet, rather than embraced in an enterprise-wide pursuit of information asset protection. Schreider finds that companies spend fortunes on security products and managed services, but continue to be overrun with viruses, hacked web sites, and loss of critical information. Tari can discuss cyberterrorism and hacking. PR: Becky Boyd, 770-642-2080
