Swordfish & Seizing Electronic Evidence

Well here it is, a couple minutes to 5:00am CST and my mind is just
now slowing down enough to get a little sleep.

Thanks to RSA Security I attended their premier screening of
'Swordfish' and I highly recommend it as one helluva movie to actually
plop down your $9.00 at the local theater and enjoy a good flick.

If you liked Travolta's performance as Castor Troy in 'Face Off' then
you will really love him in 'Swordfish.'

One fun tidbit is Halle Berry's character is named Ginger, but later
in the movie there is mention of Ginger Knowles, so who knows if that
was a little shoutout from the writers. One could only hope! =)

Buy all your drinks, snacks & munchies before the movie trailers
start, the first ten minutes of Swordfish are probably some of the
best action scenes in recent memory!

I don't want to spoil anything for anybody, one of the better sites
for movie reviews is Rotten Tomatoes and here's the link for all of
the Swordfish reviews...

Eariler in the week I had posted the article from CIO on "Break Glass,
Pull Handle, Call FBI" and I had asked for recommendations on what to
do next.

Several ISN readers have sent off URL's and guides for what to do when
you suspect (or know) that your computer(s) have had their security
compromised and you want (or hope) to prosecute the parties for doing
so.

John Glover, CISSP <glover () gnaconsult com> sent off the URL for the
United States Secret Service on IACP/USSS Best Practices for Seizing
Electronic Evidence reference guide.

From looking the online guide, it pretty much covers everything and
then some, & how can you go wrong with a guide written as Joint
Project of the International Association of Chiefs of Police and the
United States Secret Service?

John also mentions that they will also send you a pocket size spiral
version if you can prove that you are a "good guy"

There are a few other ISN readers that have sent in other suggestions
on what to do, but I haven't had the time to diseminate them all, and
I will post them as I get them. (Likely this weekend) 

Cheers!
