ROTARY/PMO HABITAT HOUSE: JON HUSTON reported at the Club Board of Directors meeting last night that the HOUSE is virtually finished. Landscaping is the next large project toward completion. If you worked on the HOUSE, be sure that your name is listed, on the sheet(s) on the Bulletin Board in order to receive "make-ups" for working. Rotarians are needed for the next two weeks to assist with various phases of construction, especially cleanup. Sign-up sheets will be available at Rotary each Tuesday for special daily work, so please check your schedule and volunteer to help with this "Service Above Self" project. It should be noted that JON HUSTON and Huston Electric, Inc. donated in-kind service of labor to do the electrical rough-ins at the HOUSE and JIM ANDREW, Henry Poor Lumber Co. donated in-kind service of labor to prefabricate the HOUSE panels. These two in-kind services should, in all probability, according to DAVE LANDGREBE, Treasurer, Lafayette Rotary Foundation, Inc. allow the Club to reach its original goal of $44,000.00 ($40,000.00 for the HOUSE and a $4,000.00 tithe to build two houses in Haiti). Congratulations to all who made contributions and worked on construction of the HOUSE.

G. RONALD NEEDHAM and BOB GARRISON have resigned from Rotary - RON due to his inability to attend and BOB has accepted a position with a hospital in Colorado.

PROGRAM (October 2, 2001)

PRESIDENT OSCAR introduced DICK BARTHOLOMEW, October Program Coordinator, who in turn introduced Dr. Mikhail J. Atallah, Professor of Computer Science, Purdue, who made an interesting presentation regarding the detection of computer crime. Prof. Atallah noted that:

  • 76% of computer crimes are committed by insiders, 36% of whom are disgruntled employees;
  • Those committing the crimes typically want: a) confidential data, such as social security, etc.; b) want to corrupt information on the computer; c) want to create a basis for future visits;
  • Probability of computer break-in is 100%.

Prof. Atallah closed by making the following "long term, 10-years out, prediction: Much more computer crime. Currently there is massive underreporting of computer crime due to embarrassment and because computer security is a growth area, and more accountability, i.e., lawsuits, is required. Following his presentation, Prof. Atallah conducted a brief Q & A session.
