Staying Informed

Managers must also stay informed about security needs and issues. The Web is the best source of current, timely Internet security and computer security information. Some useful Web hyperlinks include:

CERT Coordination Center at http://www.cert.org. CERT is a security watch-dog and reporting group.

Sun Security site at http://java.sun.com/security focuses on UNIX and Sun Solaris security issues.

Purdue University security hotlist at http://www.cs.purdue.edu/coast/coast.html.

World Wide Web Security FAQ by Lincoln D. Stein, lstein@cshl.org, version 2.0.1, March 24, 2000 is at http://www.w3.org/Security/Faq/ .

Email lists also provide alerts for System Administrators. MIS professionals with security responsibilities need to try to keep middle-level and senior managers informed about possible security problems.
