It is a safe bet that any legislation that is enacted into law will carry much stiffer penalties than the card brands assess today. Today, according to the information security experts, the following constitute the greatest risk of a data breach: 9 Wireless networks 9 Lack of adequate network segmentation 9 Application remote exploit 9 Compromise by an employee with access Last, but not least is the involvement by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

The software should be password-protected so that users cannot disable or uninstall the application. It may sound trivial, but users and administrators disable antivirus software all the time because it slows down their system. Therefore, password-protecting the administrative functions of the software has become a necessary evil. 9 The solution should also provide real-time scanning. Most of us are familiar with static scanning. That is when your desktop automatically starts a weekly scan of your hard drive or when you execute a manual scan of files on your system.

It's the process of monitoring traffic and activities on systems and networks and then performing an analysis for signs of an intrusion or compromise. Once a determination has been made that an intrusion has occurred, alarms are sent out to the appropriate IT professionals to take steps to correct the problem. In many cases, an IDS is used. Another type of intrusion detection is the Intrusion Prevention System (IPS). IPSes are considered to be the next generation of intrusion detection technology.
