    Setting up a secure network so that employees don't steal company data


    Hello,

    I have a small company and one of our employees just left the company and while leaving he stole most company data and gave it to our competitors.

    It's high time I get a secure system.

    I plan on setting up a server through which all internet access will be directed so that I can block certain websites but I don't know which software / settings to use.

    Also, I want a software that would log everything.
    Like if an employee starts his system, I should get a notification on that server or an email on a separate email that the system has been turned on.
    Or if an employee copies a file on his pen drive, I should get some kind of notification.

    Please help.

    :)

  3. Hackers Steal U.S. Government Data From PCs

    Information from the U.S. Department of Transportation and several U.S. companies was stolen by hackers who seduced employees with fake job-listings on advertisements and e-mail, a computer security firm said. The companies include consulting firm Booz Allen, computer services company Unisys Corp, computer maker Hewlett- Packard Co and satellite network provider Hughes Network Systems, a unit of Hughes Communications Inc, said Mel Morris, chief executive of British Internet security provider Prevx Ltd.

    From the list, only Unisys acknowledged that viruses had been detected and removed from two PCs, saying no information had been leaked. A Department of Transportation spokeswoman said the agency could not find any indication of a breach and a spokeswoman for Hughes said she was unaware of any breaches.
    Prevx said the malware it identified uses a program named NTOS.exe that probes PCs for confidential data, then sends it to a Web site hosted on Yahoo Inc. That site's owner is likely unaware it is being used by hackers, Morris said.
    He believes the hackers have set up several "sister" Web sites that are collecting similar data from other squadrons of malware. It was not clear whether the hackers used any information stolen from more than 1,000 PCs.
    Hackers only targeted a limited group of computers so they could easily keep a low profile and stay undetected.

    Setting up a secure network so that employees don't steal company data

    Starting network security company

    read up on CISSP certification, SOX/PCI/HIPAA compliance auditing, Computer forensics, Windows administration, Linux administration.

    you'll need a strong background in both systems and network administration to make a successful business. as well as a deep network of human contacts. most large companies do their security in house and only call in consultants for project work/audits. its far easier to make a successful career working at a large company doing security than it is to make a successful business providing that service to companies. small/medium sized companies the task is often still part of the system/network administrators position, with outsourcing of project work ( often to vendor recommended companies).

    at the grunt level: 90% of the job is looking over logs and reports for discrepancies, the other 10% is remediating/explaining those discrepancies. at the upper end its vulnerability and penetration creation and remediation ( meaning you'll need good programming skills as well).

    if you don't already have a strong background in system and/or network administration or low level programming languages ( like assembly) , you should start with that before looking at specializing in security. because without those skills you'll never succeed.
