As it in not common to be hacked on linux, and linux is really strong after install, perhaps you could specify a little under what conditions you were hacked. Was a physical intrusion? communicational? software? a web page? an open service or port? an injection? stolen passwd? Normally, hacking a linux box is the result of an inconscious administrator, sorry.

If the information you have is sensitive, -has some cost- you need to invest proportionally to it on security -hardening software, hardware, physical access.. etc.- Most persons on this list know enough to protect information to a certain level, but if you want to protect very expensive information, you should invest -as I said, proportionally- on a specialist. If not, google is enough.

Hope you find the solution...
