Ounce Labs Founder and CTO Jack Danahy to Present at SecureGOV 2008 Symposium

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - March 5, 2008) -


What:      Jack Danahy, founder and CTO for Ounce Labs, the industry
           leader in software risk analysis, will present a session titled
           "Creating a Security-Aware Acquisitions Process" at the
           SecureGOV 2008 Symposium this week.

Session
Overview:  When considering the risk associated with the acquisition of
           software, either from a vendor or an outsourcer, there are
           several overriding security issues that arise. All of these
           concerns require careful planning, execution and monitoring to
           verify that they are addressed prior to acceptance of the
           software. With growing emphasis on the need for application
           security, organizations are beginning to explicitly identify the
           security requirements of an outsourced project up front, and
           writing acceptance criteria into the contract itself to ensure
           the security of the source code.

Where:     The symposium is being held on March 9-11th at the Williamsburg
           Woodlands Hotel & Suites in Williamsburg, Va.

When:      Mr. Danahy will present on Sunday, March 9th at 1:00 p.m.

Speaker:   Jack Danahy is founder and chief technology officer of Ounce
           Labs as well as one of the industry's most prominent advocates
           for software security assurance. Prior to Ounce Labs, he founded
           Qiave Technologies, a pioneer in kernel-level security that was
           acquired by WatchGuard Technologies in October of 2000.
           Previously, Danahy served as the managing director of
           engineering for BBN/Genuity's managed security services.
