Cyberthieves Targeting Corporations

This is a non-technical piece from USA Today this week about how hackers are moving from stealing personal data directly from individuals to stealing data from corporations.

What's interesting here is that the cyberthieves are breaking into what has been sancrosant, internal networks. They're getting past corporate firewalls and their DMZs through employees web surfing and using Web 2.0 tools.

That doesn't mean corporations, many of which are resistant to technological change, should shy away from Web 2.0 -- new employees entering the workforce are demanding it -- they should keep security in mind when granting web access to employees.
