Companies step up monitoring of internal networks: Interesting article. If the hackers don’t get you, your own employees will.

Executives don’t want a repeat of what happened at America Online, where a former employee was arrested in June for allegedly stealing 92 million screen names and selling them.

Or at credit-software company Teledata Communications, where a former employee in September pleaded guilty to federal fraud charges of stealing the financial identities of tens of thousands of people.
