Hactivist groups Anonymous and LulzSec have made it clear that no computer network, not even those of security companies, are immune from penetration. Enhanced spam-filtering technology and increased user awareness are critical in combatting cyber offenses, but companies must assume their systems are already breached and should therefore analyze their network for inappropriate activity.
