Although you cannot make it completely immune to attacks, there are ways
to improve the overall security of your system to make it less vulnerable.
To help you improve your system's security, we have developed a method
for evaluating your security risks, security practices that you can implement,
and training courses for managers and technical personnel. We also have
information on how to develop your own computer security incident response
team or expand the skills of a team you already have.
The United States Secret Service (USSS) and the CERT Coordination Center
are currently analyzing network, system, and database compromises committed
by malicious insiders. We are conducting an anonymous survey of critical
infrastructure sector organizations in order to gauge the current prevalence
of insider intrusions. We encourage participation by heads of information
security, or by individuals who are most knowledgeable about any network,
data, or system intrusions in such organizations.
