Liquid Machines to Discuss Data Breaches and Encryption Technologies at Dallas SecureWorld Expo

Companies Can Protect the Bottom Line by Safeguarding Information From Security Threats

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - November 14, 2007) - Liquid Machines, Inc., the leader in Enterprise Rights Management (ERM) solutions, today announced that Jody Saarmaa, vice president of product management, will join industry experts on a panel discussion at the Dallas SecureWorld Expo, taking place on November 14-15, 2007 at the Dallas Convention Center, Hall C, in Dallas, Texas.

At the show, Saarmaa will participate in the panel:

--  "Start Encrypting Now, The Lawyers Are Coming!" which will take place
    on Wednesday, November 14, from 1:15-2:00 pm CST in the Keynote Theater.

Saarmaa and her fellow panellists, representatives from Seagate, PGP, Ingrian and Vormetric, will discuss the role of the courts in necessitating improved information security practices, with consequences ranging from lost revenue to serious litigation as a result of poor auditing and compliance. With such troubled waters surrounding companies of all sizes regarding protection of intellectual property and customer data, the panel will offer advice on how cutting-edge encryption technologies can ensure that business continues to run as usual.

"Having to pick up the pieces after major lawsuits and punitive fines is a nightmare for any business leader," said Saarmaa. "What we're trying to elucidate is how enterprises can prevent this sort of thing from ever happening -- prevent a security breach, prevent insider leaks and prevent damage to the bottom line."

Liquid Machines will present a technical demonstration of its technologies on Thursday from 10:20-10:35 am CST at booth 30, as a part of the Seattle SecureWorld Expo's "Fifteen Minutes of Fame - Vendor Product Demonstrations" program.

Liquid Machines is sponsoring the Dallas SecureWorld Luncheon on Thursday, which will include a security trivia challenge, prizes and a presentation by analyst Peter Lindstrom of Burton Group. For more information or to register for this event, please go to:
