Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 28, 2006
Vincera, Inc., the business process improvement company whose software allows their clients to protect, monitor, measure and manage the distribution of intellectual property and content that contains sensitive or personal data, today announced its ongoing seminars for Information Security Systems Association (ISSA) chapters throughout North America. The ISSA is the largest international, not-for-profit association specifically for information security professionals and practitioners. Vincera’s seminars, titled “Business Friendly Distribution: Intelligent Protection for the Enterprise,” match the ISSA’s primary goal: the promotion of management practices to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information resources. The seminars are to be delivered from June 2006 onward by Vincera’s Chief Marketing Officer, Kevin Schick, whose 30-year career encompasses experience as Gartner Group analyst, a consultant for Andersen Consulting, and a marketer in numerous technology industry verticals.
Stated Schick, “Web distribution is a necessary fact of life for corporations, but it opens them to the threats of theft, alteration, and illicit distribution of their most secret company information. Prevention of these negative outcomes is a top-of-mind concern for all security officers. Our seminars map directly onto the prevention of these negatives, detailing the specifics of using Business Friendly Distribution for intellectual property and other sensitive materials that today’s companies e-distribute.”
Said Pamela Fusco, Presidential Advisor to the ISSA, “Our membership consists of security practitioners in diverse industries, people who are charged with the vital, formidable task of ensuring data confidentiality and integrity in their companies. The ISSA stands ready to aid these practitioners in obtaining the up-to-the-minute information they require, because technology and its abuse are ever-evolving and escalating. Vincera’s seminar series supports these goals, and we are pleased to welcome Kevin as he expands knowledge of how Business Friendly Distribution can be used to broaden our members’ security options.”
The seminar will introduce the Business Friendly Distribution (BFD) concept, a process improvement framework for distributed document security and customer audit and compliance. BFD is the next generation of digital rights management, going beyond access rights and protection of documents to enable content protection, document tracking, contextual reporting, behavioral monitoring, and predictive analytics. The presentation will focus on how BFD can add value to enterprise requirements for content management regarding distributed document security that includes, but is not limited to, securing intellectual property & personal information, customer audit & compliance, and revenue generation.
Vincera is uniquely qualified to offer these seminars regarding BFD. Vincera's flagship BFD product, VAM! Intelligent Protection™ (VIP), is an information distribution technology that greatly reduces the risk of security breaches inherent in the e-distribution and storage of sensitive data by enabling companies to set business-driven rules to secure, track and manage the distribution of all sensitive content. With VIP, companies can easily customize distribution according to their desired parameters. For instance, security officers can decide to track how the documents containing sensitive information are being distributed, and track the number of machines that the document is being accessed by (potentially identifying a “breached” document); or, with the click of a button, the VIP customer can set expiration rules, ensuring that document disablement and destruction meets legislative and business requirements, and simultaneously preventing the further distribution of such data.
Concluded Vincera CEO Dave Malmstedt, “Safely e-distributing corporate information so that it cannot be lost, stolen, or altered presents a threat and a challenge for security professionals and their companies. Business Friendly Distribution provides a way for all companies to accomplish this laudable and necessary goal. We are excited to be a resource to the ISSA’s members, including security officers and audit and compliance professionals, and we look forward to continuing to assist them as they grapple with these important issues.”
