INS Lowers Barrier to Security Self-Evaluation with TrustCheck(TM) Online Tool; Significantly Reduces Cost of Measuring and Improving Security Capabilities to Comply with Regulatory Mandates.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- INS, a leading provider of business and technology consulting services and software solutions, announced today TrustCheck(TM) Online, a breakthrough product that enables IT organizations to perform self-evaluations of the effectiveness of their security practices. According to Gartner, recently adopted laws and regulations will require IT operations groups to provide evidence of the integrity of their companies' IT environments. Using TrustCheck Online, IT organizations can perform in-depth reviews of their people, processes, and technology in order to define their security capabilities and measure their level of compliance to regulations and industry standards.

By providing IT organizations with online access to the TrustCheck security evaluation tool, INS leads the way in reducing the cost of regularly measuring security capabilities and identifying improvements needed to achieve a desired level of security. TrustCheck Online is supported by TrustCheck Professional Services, which utilize INS's National Security Agency (NSA) certified Security Assessment Methodology to perform periodic on-site assessments, ensure the self-assessments are being performed effectively, and help organizations achieve their information security and regulatory compliance goals, all through a consistent and repeatable process.

On December 14, 2005, at 12 p.m. EST, INS will be presenting a webinar that explains the importance and benefits of security evaluations, and demonstrates the use of TrustCheck Online to cost-effectively measure and improve security capabilities. To register for this web-based seminar, go to www.ins.com.

The INS TrustCheck security evaluation tool, which leverages the Systems Security Engineering Capability Maturity Model (SSE-CMM), accurately measures the effectiveness and maturity of business practices employed by corporations and government agencies. TrustCheck Online provides:

--Secure, web-based access to perform security self-evaluations

--Customized assessment modules to address specific security and compliance requirements, including Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, and ISO17799:2005

--Detailed reporting on the current security posture compared to previous assessments and/or industry benchmark data

--Strategic and tactical recommendations to improve problem areas, leverage strengths, and achieve the desired security capability level

--On-site training with helpdesk support

"Since introducing the TrustCheck solution in early 2004, INS security-certified consultants have helped many IT organizations to quickly and cost-effectively improve their security capabilities to meet the demands of regulatory mandates such as Sarbanes-Oxley," stated INS CSO Jim Tiller. "Now, by making the TrustCheck evaluation tool available online, we have made it possible for many more IT organizations to perform these same comprehensive evaluations, still taking advantage of INS's experience and intellectual property, but at a much lower cost."

TrustCheck Online is available 7x24 via the secure INS INSight(TM) Customer Portal. Pricing is based on organization size and the number of modules required. Contact your local INS office for more details. www.ins.com/contact
