TruSecure and IP3 Inc. Announce Education Partnership

TruSecure will offer scholarship for IP3 Seminars and course credit for attendees.

St. Louis, MO – January 23, 2003 – IP3 Inc., a leader in Internet security education workshops for professionals, and TruSecure Corporation, a leading security services provider, today announced an education partnership. TruSecure will be offering scholarship seats to the 2003 IP3 IT Security Workshop – From Strategy to Reality. In addition, TruSecure will also be giving course credits and a discount on the cost of the TruSecure ICSA Certified Security Associate (TICSA) exam for attendees of the IP3 seminars.

TICSA certification is the industry’s most practical, vendor-neutral measurement of proficiency and growth designed to validate and improve foundation-level IT security skills for network and computer systems administrators, audit personnel, and other IT-oriented professionals. The TICSA certification is skills-based, training-neutral, pragmatic, CISSP complementary and vendor-neutral. For more information about TICSA Certification, visit

Unlike most security certifications in the market, TICSA focuses on foundation-level knowledge that is assimilated through both training and experience. TICSA practitioner certification demonstrates that IT personnel have the essential knowledge and abilities to be active stakeholders in today’s enterprise security, helping an organization achieve a more secure operational posture. According to Certification Magazine, the leading publication for IT certifications, candidates offered three primary reasons for achieving certification: assess knowledge and skills, improve credibility in the marketplace, and increase earning potential.

The IT Security education workshop from IP3 provides broad-based vendor-neutral enterprise level security education, that focuses on developing knowledge and expertise in today’s key security areas, including SANS/FBI Top 20, NIST and the President’s National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace (NSSC) proposal, access control management, firewalls VPN, intrusion detection and response, virus protection, content filtering and spam control.

The workshop, held in cities across the United States, is designed for enterprise security professionals and offers a unique intimate educational venue allowing participants to discuss and interact with other professionals to find answers and discover solutions.

“Organizations are not as well protected as they may believe they are, resulting in millions of dollars lost each year in security incidents,” said Ken Kousky, CEO of IP3 Inc. “Organizations need to adopt an enterprise-wide layered approach to IT security and assign necessary budgets to protect their IT infrastructure. In an effort to assist organizations in this endeavor, IP3 along with TruSecure, decided to fund scholarship seats to this event.” For more information or to apply for a scholarship, visit
