IP3 Inc. Launches 2003 Security Workshop

Implementing IT Security – From Strategy to Reality

St. Louis, MO – January 27, 2003 – Back by popular demand, IP3 Inc. has scheduled a 2003 U.S. tour for its 2-day Security Workshop: Implementing IT Security – From Strategy to Reality. This workshop will help companies stay on top of increasing new threats, despite tight budgets many are facing. Through partnerships with ISC2.org and TruSecure, attendees can receive continuing education credits toward their certifications. CompTIA and TICSA full and partial scholarships are also available. More information including a list of cities and dates can be found at www.ip3seminars.com.

The IT Security education workshop from IP3 provides broad-based, vendor-neutral, enterprise-level security education. It focuses on developing knowledge and expertise in the most up-to-date security areas, including the Homeland Security Act, the latest viruses and vulnerabilities, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA). The workshop, held in cities across the United States, is designed for enterprise security professionals and offers a unique and intimate educational venue allowing participants to discuss and interact with other professionals to find answers and discover solutions.

The workshop includes real hack and crack demonstrations and live labs and demos. Participants will discover solutions to address the top rated security problems: multi-vendor integration, mobile and remote security, unsolicited content, wireless security and appropriate use and use management. By offering a blend of proactive and reactive strategies, participants will learn the strategic architecture deemed the most successful by the KPMG 2002 Global Information Survey. From the workshop, participants will also receive a CD of tools and free software, a comprehensive reference library and URL’s to stay up-to-date on the latest security threats and solutions.

“Security by association does not work,” said Ken Kousky, CEO of IP3 Inc. “Too many companies believe that if others are advancing security, they can ignore it. IP3 is working to understand the departure between ever increasing risks and decreasing budgets. Organizations need to adopt an enterprise-wide layered approach to IT security and assign necessary budgets to protect their IT infrastructure.”

In addition, Mr. Kousky stated, “this is a strategic workshop designed to provide an in-depth and comprehensive overview. It addresses a broad range of topics for improving your immediate reactive efforts for addressing current threats while simultaneously offering a framework for proactively deploying long-term comprehensive management process and system architecture.”

The workshop is sponsored by Panda Software, Lancope, Network Magazine, PoliVec, SPI Dynamics, Tripwire, PestPatrol, nCipher, Symmetricom, Vocent, CompTIA, New Horizons Computer Learning Centers, Tivoli software, VyTek Wireless (ISC)2, Check Point Software Technologies, OpenUmbrella, TruSecure and Vytek.
