Secure Messaging Expert to Join Hundreds of Top Government
and Private Sector Thought Leaders at Premier Security
Tumbleweed(R) Communications Corp. (Nasdaq:TMWD), a leading provider of secure messaging applications for businesses and government entities using the Internet, today announced that Ken Beer, Product Line Manager, will be presenting at the Council of Security and Strategic Technology Organizations 2002 Annual Conference, to be held in Arlington, VA, October 14-17, 2002. Other confirmed speakers include current and previous high-ranking officials from the United States Department of Defense, Central Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency, Office of Homeland Security, Department of Energy and the National Institute of Standards and Technology, among others.
Ken Beer, Product Line Manager at Tumbleweed Communications, will participate on a panel discussion as part of the "Digital Security and IT Defense" track at COSTO 2002 entitled, "Insuring Digital Security - Secure End-to-End Transmission - User Authentication and Authorization." Mr. Beer's presentation will describe the steps involved in establishing an authentication scheme for secure messaging with customers, partners and suppliers, a survey of the approaches, as well as tips for managing authorization on an ongoing basis.
Thursday, October 17, 2002 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. EDT.
As private sector companies and government agencies continue to deploy secure messaging solutions to enable secure online collaboration with outside parties, protect sensitive content from leaving the network and limit the liability associated with employee misuse, user authentication grows in importance. Without a properly designed authentication mechanism to establish graduated levels of privilege, little can be done to ensure senders and recipients have the proper authorization to share message contents. This presentation will provide case-study examples of government agencies, financial services firms and healthcare organizations that have successfully overcome this challenge.
