Question and answer
Q: What steps should law enforcement take to reduce computer crime in their community?
A: Crime involving computers is often difficult to detect and can have serious effects on its victims. [ Advances in technology have made computer hackers and identity thieves more creative, but there are still a number of ways to help ensure that you do not fall victim to this type of violation. Whether your computer is on a local or wide area network or is a stand-alone unit with a simple
Internet connection, take the necessary measures to protect your system from these crimes. 1.Any computer network should be protected by a firewall. A firewall is a virtual barrier that disallows information from making its way into the network without authorization. The firewall will block out any data that has not been intentionally permitted by the network administrator. While this is an extremely helpful preventive measure, it can be circumnavigated and it does nothing to protect the network from an internal problem. Anti-Virus Software The spread of computer viruses can be responsible for major losses of data and sometimes money or machinery. There are a number of anti-virus software options that will help prevent these harmful programs from getting onto a network or a single computer.

OpManager.ManageEngine.com Intrusion Detection Systems An intrusion detection system (IDS) is a good secondary line of defense in addition to a firewall. An IDS can help indicate when an internal attack is taking place or when a hacker has bypassed a firewall and obtained access to the system, according to Interpol's website. This system identifies statistical deviations and points out unusual behavior within the network. When activity that is inconsistent with the typical tasks performed on the network occur, the IDS flags the activity and its source, alerting the appropriate people that an intrusion may be happening. ]
