"In an age when 'e-smurfs' can take out sites

from becoming all-too painful realities."
The evening will provide updates on all major eRisk incidents and eBusiness

"First Tuesday is an excellent initiative for
budding eBusiness entrepreneurs. We welcome the initiative to see on-line security
as a top priority. Whether a company is pre-IPO management or a venture capital
house, all need to be prepared for dealing with eBusiness interruptions especially
after the attacks on Amazon, eBay, CNN and ZDNet earlier this month",
