"Internal Web Abuse Just as Harmful as Cyberterrorism," Says Stellar
"Internal Web Abuse Just as Harmful as Cyberterrorism," Says Stellar

Stellar Technologies, a leading provider of employee Internet management solutions, is taking its message on the road. The Florida-based company will be traveling across the US, providing organizations with a comprehensive portfolio of Internet management and security solutions. While the threat of cyber terrorism from the outside is on everybody's mind, Stellar cautions companies, that internal Web abuse is just as harmful and must not be ignored.

The company is targeting the unlawful use of company Web services in connection to pornography, gambling, and relaying crude and offensive instant messages and e-mails. Rather than turn a blind eye to such issues, Stellar says these are substantive issues that corporations must face when managing Internet connections.

Richard Schmidt, Chairman and CEO of Stellar, said, "Stellar Technologies is honored to participate in some of the most highly respected information security events in the US over the next several months to present organizations with real-time management options. While organizations are generally prepared with a plan of action for security threats from the outside looking in, all too often they downplay the importance of protecting sensitive data from leaving company networks and managing how employees utilize the powerful, and somewhat misinterpreted tool in which they have been provided; company Internet access."

In December, Stellar Technologies will be on hand as former mayor Rudi Giuliani opens New York's InfoSecurity event. Now, the company is partaking in the Computer Security Institute event underway in Washington, DC, at the Marriot Wardman Park. They are discussing Internet management and security. And to kick off 2005, Stellar will be in Tampa, Florida at The Department of Defense's Cyber Crime Conference, January 11-12, discussing Internet management choices within the government.

Schmidt elaborated on how Internet misuse affects employers, "The threats are clear when related to lost productivity and costly litigation, but more important is the security of our homeland. Today, supported by a strong environment for homeland security, companies and governments have an opportunity to participate in closing off one of the biggest holes in Internet connections today; cyber terrorism. Stellar Technologies is prepared to help in this endeavor with Internet management solutions for any size organization."

Stellar will conclude its Internet security 'road show,' at the 2005 Gartner ITxpo in Orlando, Florida. Before this, running June 5-10, Stellar will be onsite for the Microsoft TechEd event in Orlando, Florida followed by the late October Groupwise Summit in Las Vegas.

The Website above is my Website, and I have my story linked there. Its been 4 days now since someone put up a bogus website attacking myself and my family, and I am destroyed, my life and my business because of a prank.

I have located the IP address, and we are close to finding the person at the government office in Morton IL., but the problem is the host refuses to remove it after several atempts by myself, my daughter, and many friends, its still up. They seem to make this a problem to be much worse than it is. They ask for money to get records for people like me that get degradated in the worse form. There is no internet law.

I filed a report with the FCC, I called the FBI, I emailed states Att. in IL. and IL. Attorney general with no reply. When I get my phone reord I will know who this is, he called twice last week from Morton. This is a nightmare that won't go away. Identidy theft, Copyright laws broken (as they show my photo and my daughters), and the most damaging of all, the degradating. This is a very serious crime and not to be taken lightly.

Certainly *managing* the Internet has become as important as merely using it. There's a clear message for CIOs everywhere here.
