perpetual calendar, offering a schedule of reminders for a proactive, strategic security plan. Here are the objectives Shelley prescribes for weeks 14 through 17.

Week 14: Malicious code -- When viruses and worms run amok
Objective: Update your antivirus software weekly; daily during virus outbreaks.

Week 15: Spring cleaning: Part 1 -- Accounts and space

Week 16: Spring cleaning, part 2 – Hardware
Objective: Update hardware inventory at least once a year.

Week 17: Spring cleaning, part 3 – Data
Objective: Review data holdings at least once a year.
