They have a non-marketeering equivalent to the FUD that NAI is selling.
Their CIO is John Flowers who has won the Defcon capture the firewall
contest a couple of years in a row (while singularly competeing against a

"Nelson said that running CyberCopScan is a complex process requiring
someone knowledgeable in IT (information technology)."

Huh? My first exposure to Cybercop was a Price-Waterhouse audit analyst
(READ: accountant who knows how to use Word) who thought it would be a
good idea for him to run this against my internal network but was "having
trouble downloading it from the server".
