MALIBU, CALIFORNIA--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 25, 2005) - Vinoble, Inc.
(OTCBB:VNBL)

Thomas Welch Also Accepts Membership on the CHS Preparation and Response
Team; Earns Homeland Security Certification

Vinoble, Inc. (OTCBB:VNBL), a holding company seeking to identify
long-term growth opportunities in the areas of homeland security,
security information systems, and other security services, announced
today that its newly-named chief operating officer, Thomas Welch, has
been awarded Member status in the American College of Forensic Examiners
Institute (ACFEI).

Welch also has received a Level III Certification in Homeland Security
(CHS-III), and has accepted a membership position on the CHS Preparation
and Response Team in the ACFEI's Security, Engineering and Technology
division.

The ACFEI regularly acknowledges the experience and education of
individuals engaged in forensic examination and multi-disciplinary
training in their field, and it has recognized Welch for his more than
12 years experience and training in computer forensics.

"In the security industry, it is essential to have the proper experience
and credentials to become a trusted partner to clients and business
associates, and these honors are testament that, as both an individual
and a company, we have the ability to deliver exceptional security
services," said Welch. "Vinoble's dedicated management team is
positioning the company to provide both proactive and reactive security
services, especially those that require years of education and
experience - such as computer forensics. Our services will help prevent
hack attacks, cyber-terrorism, and insider abuse, and will assist our
clients in the constant battle against spam, viruses and other malware."

As proposed by President George W. Bush, the national strategy for
homeland security includes a call for the private sector to work with
government to respond to national security threats. The FY 2005 Homeland
Security Appropriations Act, signed by the President on October 18,
2004, provides $28.9 billion in net discretionary spending for the
Department of Homeland Security in 2005; this is a $1.8 billion or 6.6
percent increase over the previous year.

The new funding level reflects an ongoing commitment of the
Administration and Congress to secure the homeland, and it will allow
the Department to build upon significant investments to date by
improving the United States' safeguards against terrorism, while
sustaining many other important departmental activities.

"Vinoble is particularly excited about opportunities to provide security
services to the U.S. government and other public sector clients, and we
take pride in that our management and delivery teams have the requisite
education, knowledge and expertise to deliver quality products and
services in this space," added Joseph Lively, Vinoble president and CEO.
"Upon completion of ongoing audits expected at the end of February 2005,
we will begin merging business operations and expect to leverage our
strong security expertise and diverse client base to make Vinoble a key
player in the security arena."
