Our procedures are very similar to those expounded by Peter, Paul and

1/ use argus logs to verify incident.
2/ acknowledge or disclaim the incident to the complainant
3/ track down offender and either clean up or discipline.

Our security policy states that departments must have proceedures in
place to identify who is responsible for any network traffic.  In most
cases we don't have too much trouble figuring out who did what.

That said, we have very little trouble from our students, either they
are very smart or they know that everything is logged and that they will
get caught.

Cheers, Russell
