Abstract

This chapter examines the attitudes of Australian IS/IT managers to the concept of cyber-vigilantism. Also, it explores the policies and procedures which have been set in place by various organizations to cope with concerted attacks on their systems. It finds that although a majority of managers do approve of the concept of “striking back’, only a minority are prepared for this eventuality. There appears to be complacency about the threats posed by organized, offensive attackers.
