Electronic Intruders

Answered by: 

Question: 
I have installed the BlackIce Firewall on our internet PC at the bank. Yesterday it detected an intruder and successfully blocked them. It gave me their IP address but no other information was available. I have reported it to the President, what else should I do? Do I need to call the FDIC or just document that it happened? BlackIce provides a way to see where it came from and all it told me was Asian-Pacific origin. This is a new process for us and has me somewhat on edge.
Answer: 

File an SAR and indicate the nature of the crime. FinCen et al. are tracking (and learning) about e-crime. Every bit of information helps.First published on BankersOnline.com 2/5/01
