Make Hackers Hate You

Skilled hackers number only 3,000, says William Malik of researcher Gartner Group. But most small-business defenses are weak, and hackers know it. You stand a 50% chance of getting hacked by 2003 if you manage your own computer security, Gartner says--and more than half the victims won't be aware of the breach.

How to protect yourself? For dial-up access, consolidate individual desktop modems into one easy-to-defend unit or "pool." Outsource fire wall and intrusion services--for less than half the salary of a good tech pro, says Gartner. Smaller companies can get a free five-user fire wall from NetGuard Inc., at www.netguard.com.Edited by Kimberly Weisul
