LEE, MA--(Marketwire - Jan 25, 2012) - Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ: WAVX) ( today announced that CEO Steven Sprague will speak at the U.S. Department of Defense Cyber Crime Conference 2012 held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Atlanta, GA on Thursday, January 26th. The conference focuses on all types of computer-based crime and incident response including intrusion investigations, cyber crime law, digital forensics, information assurance, as well as the research, development, testing and evaluation of digital forensic tools.

Sprague will reveal how enterprises can enable embedded security on their business PCs to establish a second authentication factor for network access. He'll cover the widely publicized breach at Lockheed Martin last spring, and the implications it had on newfound vulnerabilities of user authentication technologies, including one-time password tokens.

Sprague will address the need for device identification. By establishing the identity of the device in addition to the identity of the user, two completely independent and parallel authentication systems can work in tandem to safeguard the corporate network from unauthorized access.
