A survey recently completed by the Computer Security Institute (CSI) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) revealed that corporations, banks, and governments all face a growing threat from computer crime, and in particular computer hacking. Computer hacking activities caused well over US$100 million in losses last year in the USA and the trend toward professional computer crime, such as computer hacking, is on the rise. Different methods are currently used to control the computer crime problem, for example, by controling access to and from a network by implementing a firewall. As the survey highlighted, most of these methods are insufficient. New means and ways which will minimise and control the hacking problem must therefore continuously be researched and defined. Proposes a method, using trend analysis, that could be utilized to minimise and control the hacking problem in an organisation.
