Vice President Government Affairs and Corporate Development Robert Dix to Present on Insider Security Threats and Preventing Confidential Data Loss

ARLINGTON, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 18, 2005 -- (NASDAQ: CDSS)

Who:

Robert B. Dix, Jr. VP Government Affairs & Corporate Development, Citadel Security Software

Prabhat Agarwal, Manager, Information Security Analysis, INPUT

What:

Leading security experts present on sensitive and/or private data loss and best practices for internal security at the Defending Against Insider-Threat Conference sponsored by IT Security Magazine and Homeland Defense Journal.

One of the most dangerous security threats today is malicious action by a trusted insider or ex-employee with access to corporate network resources and proprietary data. In today's regulatory environment, even inadvertent disclosures of private data could have disastrous legal consequences for the organization responsible for protecting that data.

Despite the number of recent news reports about hacker attacks and external network intrusions, trusted employees and business partners with authorized access to data still pose the greatest security risk to the modern enterprise -- both government and private sector. New research by IT*Security Magazine's Executive Editor, Dan Verton, uncovered major insider and corporate governance problems at some of the nation's largest private firms and government agencies. That research, as well as detailed case studies from the front lines and groundbreaking new technology developments designed to help organizations weed out malicious insiders, will be presented for the first time at the Insider Threat conference.

Where:

Defending Against Insider-Threat Conference for Government & Commercial Legal, Privacy, IT & Security Managers, Holiday Inn Arlington, Arlington, Virginia.

When:

Thursday, August 18, 2005 at 1:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.

Mr. Dix will also present the conference opening remarks at 8:00 a.m. and closing remarks at 4:45 p.m.

Best Practices for Preventing Confidential Data Loss via the Insider

Abstract:
