INTEGRITY Global Security Announces the Appointment of Paul Kurtz to Board of Advisors

SANTA BARBARA, CA and WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - November 11, 2009) - INTEGRITY Global Security, a wholly owned subsidiary of Green Hills Software Inc. and the leading expert in providing High Robustness IT security solutions using the INTEGRITY operating system, the first and only operating system to be evaluated by the NSA and certified by NIAP to EAL 6+ and High Robustness, today announced that Paul B. Kurtz has joined the INTEGRITY Global Security Board of Advisors.

Mr. Kurtz is a recognized cyber security and homeland security expert. He served as Special Assistant to the President and senior director on the White House's National Security and Homeland Security Councils under Presidents Clinton and Bush where he was responsible for both physical and cyber security for critical infrastructure protection. He is currently a managing partner at Good Harbor Consulting where he offers strategic counsel for identifying security vulnerabilities and mitigating risks to a variety of clients. Mr. Kurtz was the founding Executive Director of the Cyber Security Industry Alliance (CSIA), an advocacy group dedicated to ensuring the privacy, reliability and integrity of information systems through public policy, technology, education and awareness.

"With increasingly sophisticated adversaries seeking to steal sensitive information and disrupt critical operations in both government and the private sector, we must begin to deploy 'leap-ahead' technology. Solutions built on the EAL 6+ High Robustness INTEGRITY operating system will help us leap ahead of the adversary while not requiring wholesale changes to existing infrastructure. INTEGRITY has been deployed to protect some of our most sophisticated weapons systems and is now available to help protect critical government and private sector IT systems. I am impressed by the INTEGRITY solution and encouraged that we can now be protected from cyber vulnerabilities with INTEGRITY," said Paul Kurtz.

Mr. Kurtz joins two other distinguished members on the INTEGRITY Global Security Board of Advisors: Thomas McMillen, a former three-term Congressman from Maryland and presently Chairman and CEO of the Homeland Security Capital Corporation; and Eugene Habiger, a former Four Star General (USAF, Retired), who served as the Commander in Chief of the U.S. Strategic Air Command as well as having been the Director of Security and Emergency Operations at the US Department of Energy.

"Cyber security is a high priority to the both the Congress and the Administration and having Mr. Kurtz on our Board of Advisors provides us with additional insight and experience in being responsive to the efforts to secure our country's cyber assets. The combination of his public and private sector background and consummate knowledge of cyber security issues, policy and solutions is a great addition to this Board. The sum of their experience, and the counsel they provide, will be invaluable as we move forward to deploy INTEGRITY based solutions within the United States Government," said Michael Liacko, Executive Vice President of INTEGRITY Global Security.
