Security Policy Development
Greyhat's Security Policy Development Service is for those organizations that want to begin implementing an e-commerce (Internet/intranet) strategy. These customers are very concerned with the security implications of such a business strategy, and recognize the need to develop a formal security policy regarding Internet and intranet accessibility of their systems and databases. In fact, this service should be of interest to every organization that does not yet have a formal security policy.
The Security Policy Development service provides the resources of a security consultant to establish a methodology for the development and maintenance of a formal security policy, assistance in the evaluation of business requirements for utilization of the applications and information supported by the customer's enterprise, and the development of rules and processes that make up the core of a security policy. This allows intended access yet protects the confidentiality and proprietary nature of company information assets. The security consultant works with customer management, technical personnel, and user representatives in determining requirements and develops a formal security policy. This policy is the basis for evaluation and selection of security technologies (firewalls), development of processes and procedures, and the implementation of these components which successfully protects the company's assets and interests.
Greyhat's Security Policy Development Service offers the customer the technical expertise to assist in the critical steps necessary to minimize the potential for operational, financial, legal, and public image losses due to improperly considered security planning in the move towards more cost- effective business processes that utilize the power and visibility of the Internet.

Statement of U.S. Senator Phil Gramm
Sen. Phil Gramm, chairman of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs, was among the Senate and House conferees who reached a compromise early Friday morning on details of financial services modernization, including the Community Reinvestment Act. By vote of the conferees, the compromise will be part of the Gramm-Leach Act. Details of the compromise will be available Friday afternoon.
Gramm made the following statement after the compromise was reached:
"The financial services modernization legislation is the most important banking legislation in 60 years. The people it will benefit most are working families. It is legislation that we can be proud of, and it will become law because it will pass both houses of Congress by large margins and will be signed by the President. The hallmark of the bill is that it will make an array of financial services available to every American consumer that will provide lower prices and one-stop shopping at financial supermarkets in every city and town in the country. The bill has very strong Community Reinvestment Act reforms. For the first time, payments of vast sums of money that flow under the requirement of CRA agreements will be made public, and those who receive the money will have to file an annual report on how they are spending that money in the public interest. This will promote real accountability and assure that the money is used to benefit the working families that it is supposed to help. The legislation also grants major regulatory relief to every small bank in America. More than 82 percent will receive a dramatic reduction of the regulatory burden from CRA audits.
