Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO, ImageWare Systems Talks About Fujitsu Cloud Partner Program, Plus, Thought Leadership Interviews With Security Leaders at AMAG, HP, Microsoft, SMARTRAC, Tyco on SecuritySolutionsWatch.com

RYE BROOK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 5, 2014) - ImageWare Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY)

ImageWare Systems
Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO, discusses the main benefits of partnering with Fujitsu Cloud Partner Program

Mr. Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO, ImageWare Systems Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY), told us, "We've taken a novel approach in partnering with Fujitsu for the development and launch of the IWS solution from their cloud. The prospect of designing and implementing a SaaS platform and moving it to cloud delivery is something that required a world class partner with global reach and one of the world's largest and most secure cloud platforms. The combination of ImageWare's GoCloudID™ on the Fujitsu cloud, as well as their SaaS enablement platform, has proven its value since the beginning of our engagement. We rely on the Fujitsu TPS5 Cloud for our development and test environments, as well as our production/client systems. It would be hard to quantify the amount of time and money we have saved by working with Fujitsu to deploy our SaaS delivery model. Further, the "fast-track" nature of the cloud partner program allows us to maintain our leadership position in the market as the premier, cloud-based biometric solution provider. We established this line of business as the foundation for our partnering arrangement. This includes 'no-cost cloud and SaaS enablement services' balanced by a unique revenue sharing model, as well as sales and marketing support."

HP Enterprise Services
Mr. John Diamant, Distinguished Technologist, CISSP, CSSLP, HP Secure Product Development Strategist & U.S. Public Sector Application Security Strategist, told us, "Attackers are better funded and more motivated today than they were in decades past. It used to be that the primary motivation of attackers was fame or just to prove that they could successfully exploit a vulnerability. Today, a large percentage of attacks are motivated by identity theft, credit card theft, industrial espionage, cyber warfare or "hactivism", and some are Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs). In these cases, the motivation is significant financial, political or strategic gain and, as a result, the attackers are often well funded and more sophisticated."

Microsoft
Mr. Mike Howard, Chief Security Officer, Microsoft, told us, "Out of necessity, you're seeing greater collaboration between the CSO and CISO. I think there's still more work to be done on that in the security world at large. There are still a number of companies and institutions in which the CSOs do not talk to the CISOs for any number of reasons; so that's something that we need to continue to work on."

Ms. Carmen Gonzalez, Co-founder, President & CEO, SYS-CON Media, Ulitzer, Inc., and Cloud Expo, Inc., told us, "We have a track devoted to security and mobility issues, because it is absolutely mission-critical for enterprise IT today. C.J. Radford of Vormetric, for example, will do a deep dive on safeguarding data in the cloud, and there's nothing more mission-critical than that! This is a must-attend session for security professionals, as far as I'm concerned. Rishi Bhargava from Intel Security will take an interesting approach, asking attendees whether it's time "to think like a thief" when it comes to security. He's one of the world's leading experts and will let attendees know how to stay ahead of the bad guys. Also, James Lynn from HP will present his point of view of the future of security from one of the world's top technology vendors. And we have Arthur Hicken from Parasoft talking about security and Evelyn de Souza from Cisco addressing the critical issue of data privacy. So we're addressing the topic in a lot of detail."

Nordic IT Security
Organised by Copperberg AB
www.nordicitsecurity.com

"As organizations rely more and more on IT systems, as the workforce gets more and more mobile, as services become more and more intertwined with products, and as devices get more and more connected to the internet, the security of an organization's IT infrastructure becomes more and more critical.

Last year, we saw over 200 participants and 52 partners join us in Stockholm to discuss issues related to IT Security in the Nordics. This year's Nordic IT Security will take place on November 5th, 2014 in Stockholm and will, yet again, gather senior IT security professionals from across the Nordics and industry verticals to cover key areas of concerns for organizations from both public and private sector.

Key topics that will be addressed:

  • Building a comprehensive security architecture framework that aligns with business strategies
  • Automating the compliance, risk and governance process
  • Addressing and understanding security issues in cloud environments
  • Authentication tools and solutions for secure access controls

Over the course of one day, you will experience recent case studies, insightful demos, dedicated roundtables, in-depth workshops, technological lightning talks, and plenty of networking opportunities to give you greater insight on strategic implementations of the latest technology showcased in the Exhibition Hall.

Do not miss this unique opportunity to network with your peers from across the Nordic! I look forward to meeting you this November in Stockholm.

Sincerely, Thomas Igou, The Editor - Nordic IT Security 2014
