Security Expert Dan Verton to Hold Book Signing for The Insider: A True Story at Reconnex's Booth During RSA Conference 2006

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 14 /PRNewswire/ --
Dan Verton, an award-winning journalist and security expert, is author of The Insider: A True Story, the groundbreaking book that reveals the true extent of the insider threat to proprietary data and personal privacy. He is also author of Black Ice: The Invisible Threat of Cyber-Terrorism and The Hacker Diaries: Confessions of Teenage Hackers. Verton has presented his research into the high-tech future of terrorism to the Department of Homeland Security, the Air Force War College, the U.S. Secret Service, the Library of Congress, NASA's Counterintelligence Division, and colleges and universities around the country.

Verton will be giving a presentation entitled, "2006: Year of the Insider Threat" and sign copies of his book The Insider: A True Story at the Reconnex booth, #243, at RSA Conference 2006 on Tuesday, February 14 (11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.). The book, published by Llumina Press, is a study of the threat that security breaches by insiders pose not only to personal, corporate, and governmental data but also to America's economic competitiveness. Verton reveals the true extent of the insider threat to proprietary data and personal privacy, and contends that security policies and procedures are meaningless without a technology that can enforce them. He backs his claims with statistical trends and blind data samples amassed and revealed by Reconnex Corporation.
