RedSeal Systems Selected to Present at Technosium 2008

CSO Brian Laing to Focus on Proactive Security and How Enterprises Can Leverage Their Existing Security Infrastructure and Investments

REDWOOD SHORES, CA--(Marketwire - January 28, 2008) - RedSeal™ Systems Inc., the leader in innovative Security Risk Management (SRM) solutions, today announced chief security officer Brian Laing is among the industry experts that have been selected to present at Technosium 2008 Conference & Expo taking place January 29-31, 2008 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California. Technosium is an international event focused on information security, storage, software, networking and wireless technologies.

Laing will present, "Proactive Security: Getting the Most from What is Deployed" on January 31, 2008 from 2 - 2:55 p.m. in room 206. The session will focus on the need for today's networks to be highly dynamic to keep pace with the increases in security complexity. Security teams need to be able to audit the network on demand so that they can assess the security impact of network changes and new threats in real time. Laing will provide an overview of the best practices and technologies that have emerged to automate the identification and measurement of network security risk so that security teams can make sound security management decisions, learn how to make the most of an enterprise's existing security tools, and most importantly, how daily use of proactive security best practices will help security teams act ahead of an exploit or security incident.

"By utilizing best practices, security teams can get the most value from deployed security tools and be able to better and more easily track network security as a whole," said Laing. "We've conducted extensive research in security risk management and continue to update our RedSeal Threat Reference Library, which currently tracks more than 28,000 threats and is dynamic proof that network security is more complex today than ever before. In this session, we plan to provide attendees with the tools necessary for making the most out of their current security solutions and most importantly, provide them with information on risk management best practices that will help them better evaluate their existing security infrastructure."
