Security Matters: Every Layer of Protection Counts

A Send Word Now Featured Webinar Will Examine the Importance of Security Features in Emergency Notification

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 18, 2010) - Send Word Now, the leading provider of emergency notification and on-demand incident management, alerting, and response services, is pleased to present a featured webinar focused on the importance of security features in emergency notification, to be hosted at 2:00 PM EDT on August 26, 2010, by President and CEO Tony Schmitz.

As Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions gain momentum in the marketplace, IT professionals are becoming increasingly concerned with uptime, privacy risks and overall security. It is now more important than ever that clients verify that their emergency notification service provider can meet the industry's stringent security standards to ensure that the provider is committed to providing high-quality services. Send Word Now's webinar will address these security standards and their impact on emergency notification.

During the webinar, Tony Schmitz will speak candidly about:

  • Why security matters when dealing with personal data and information
  • How 3rd party audits can reduce performance risk
  • Why "Digital Signatures" have recently become the most talked about security feature in discussions about the Cloud
  • Key questions any client should ask an emergency notification provider

He will also spend a portion of the webinar responding to viewer questions.

Webinar participants are encouraged to submit questions to Tony via for a chance to win a $25 Apple Gift Card. Winning questions will be chosen based on originality and thoughtfulness and will be read and answered during the Q&A portion of the webinar. Participants are asked to include their name, company and contact information when submitting a question so that the winners can be notified.
