An organization should have effective systems to prevent incidents from occurring. This should minimize the organization’s losses. However, regardless of how much effort is expended in incident prevention, some incidents will still occur. Once an incident has happened, initiating the investigation process promptly will increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the analysis.
Initiating an investigation or analysis involves many tasks, which are listed below. Each of these issues will be reviewed briefly.
•Emergency response activities
•Immediate response activities
•Beginning the investigation
•Initial incident reports and corrective action requests
Fig. S: The arms removed from their mold. Fig. T: The finished casting, cleaned up, glued together, and painted with primer.
1. Remove the original part, sprue, vents, and pouring gate, and dust the inside of each mold half lightly with cornstarch or talcum powder. I put my powder into a small cloth sack, secured with a rubber band, to spread it evenly without clumping
(Figure P). Silicone rubber gets a slippery tack to it, as the silicone gradually sweats out. This means that silicone molds generally need no mold release, because the silicone itself prevents sticking. But a light dusting still helps the two halves align together perfectly, and also acts as a sponge to the resin, drawing it into the fine details of your mold and inhibiting small bubbles which can gather at the high points.
2. Put the mold halves back together, box them in their original box, and secure it all with rubber bands, pouring side up.
Wireless networking is everywhere. Someday, we'll have built-in
wireless receivers in our heads. Meanwhile, times are improving for
Linux wireless administrators, if you shop carefully and buy wireless
interface cards with good Linux support and WPA2 support. Using
well-supported wireless interfaces means you'll be able to dive directly
into configuring your network instead of hassling with funky driver
problems. This chapter shows how to build a secure, flexible, robust
combination wireless access point/router/Internet firewall using Pyramid
Linux on a Soekris single-board computer. It supports wireless and wired
Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X clients sharing a broadband Internet
connection and LAN services. Just one big happy clump of wired and
wireless clients together in harmony.
Why go to all this trouble? Because you'll have more control, all
the powerful features you could ever want, and save money.
You don't have to have an all-in-one-device. The recipes in this
chapter are easy to split apart to make separate devices, such as a
dedicated firewall and a separate wireless access point.
