Rudy Giuliani, the anti-hacker: If he can clean up Times Square, hackers should be no problem.

Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s consulting firm and accounting firm Ernst & Young joined forces Thursday to help companies guard against computer hackers.

The firms unveiled what they called the Advance Security Centers in Ernst & Young’s offices in New York’s Times Square and in Houston, where staff members with military and corporate security backgrounds will toil away on computers to protect clients.
