comment How to lure a Hacker?
The hacker will already have done their damage before you manage to prosecute them (if you ever do). Luring them in now isn't of any real benefit to you.

comment windows firewall disabled with Norton Internet security or Norton Smart Firewall?
In that situation I'd apply, update and configure Norton and then disable the MS software afterwords. However the firewall at your gateway should take care of most traffic on a corporate network, the software firewall on the individual PCs is more of a second wall of defence.

comment Detecting and filtering data over AC power lines?
I don't think you have to worry about them if you're in an isolated building as they cannot go beyond the local circuit. Users would be able to set up a LAN but they wouldn't be able to hook it up to your network or to company devices if they're configured properly.

MAC addresses can be spoofed in a few seconds, MAC filters don't really do anything.

comment Will antivirus detect all keyloggers?
Just want to add that there are hardware keyboard taps too which will not be picked up by any AV no matter how sophisticated it is.

comment Encryption key storage
Is anyone else wondering what happens if the key server hardware dies? Also don't forget about physical security, if someone grabs the key server or any backups it looks like it's all over.

It's definitely not 2, my accounts would have locked me out a long time ago if it was.

comment Who is responsible for the strength of user's passwords?
You are paying just not with cash, you are giving SE something of value for the service. If you decide to give this to another company because your account got hacked it doesn't really matter whether it's your PW or SE's server which are at fault, either way SE is no longer getting this value from you, SE is the one losing out.

The tree in that example isn't paying you. It's irrelevant whether a security issue is your fault or the client's if the end result is that the client no longer buys your product.
