You would think, if you're in the "unauthorized computer break-in prevention" business, that you better make damn sure that your systems are pretty well protected -- because you are absolutely going to be a target. However, on top of that, you should probably make sure that your customer records are encrypted and you don't keep information you're not supposed to -- like credit card CVV numbers. Unfortunately, it appears that Guidance Software did none of those things, and is now informing customers that their info had been stolen by hackers. In fact, Guidance didn't even notice the hack until two weeks after it happened, which doesn't bode well for its sales pitch on its new security tools targeted at law enforcement officials.
