Stopping computer crime requires two basic things: You need to let criminals know it won't be tolerated by reporting and prosecuting, and tell the world what these crimes are and how folks can avoid being a victim. It's not enough to know you're under attack, or that you think you're in compliance with relevant laws—you must collect the evidence supporting your assumptions.

Meticulous cybersleuth takes on high-tech cases

Monday, November 08, 2004 (13:48:42)
Just call William Simon the Sherlock Holmes of computers. The cyberspace sleuth would love the comparison. In fact, he named his business, Abberline Investigations, after his distant cousin Frederick Abberline, a Victorian-era Scotland Yard investigator.

The licensed private investigator, with more than two decades of experience in computer forensics, is the go-to guy when companies need to analyze and retrieve information stored on a computer in such a way that the information can be used as evidence in a court of law.

Easy to defeat computer forensics

Wednesday, October 27, 2004 (08:24:30)
Breaking into computer networks and remaining untraceable after the breach has been detected is apparently easier than anyone would like it to be, said The Grugq, a Britain-based hacker. The Grugq, who refused to reveal his true identity, said remaining undetectable, even from computer forensics experts, is achievable with freely available tools that can be downloaded from the Internet. “The scary thing is that it’s very easy to do. Law enforcement officers rely on expensive commercial tools rather than knowledge,” he said.
