Deterring hacker attacks: A free demonstration

Wil Chung writes "Recent IBM research revealed that there were 237 million hacks in the first six months of 2005. As the frequency, diversity and sophistication of these attacks continues to grow, what can you do to effectively protect your business?

ForLinux and Globix would like to invite you to a free security workshop that will:

Demonstrate the techniques hackers use to break into networks with a live hack

Highlight the potential uses of a hacked server

Evaluate the practical and economic impact on your business

Provide a practical security audit for use on your own server to deter the majority of hacker attacks
