SecureLogix President Lee Sutterfield to Speak at 21st Annual Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST) Conference

SAN ANTONIO --(Business Wire)-- SecureLogix Corporation (News - Alert) announced today that President and Chairman of the Board Lee Sutterfield will discuss the critical need for voice network security and monitoring in incident response planning and will participate in a panel discussion of voice-over-IP (VoIP) security at the 21st Annual FIRST Conference. The conference, titled "Aftermath: Crafts and Lessons of Incident Recovery," is being held June 28-July 3 at the Hotel Granvia in Kyoto, Japan.

Sutterfield's presentation, entitled "Incident Response for Voice Services," will be held on July 1, 2009 from 4:00-5:00 p.m., followed by a 30-minute VoIP panel discussion. In his presentation, Sutterfield will provide perspective on the set of vulnerabilities unique to voice services, offer a basic explanation of voice firewall technology for securing the voice network against unauthorized access, and introduce some of the fundamentals of voice incidence response as currently practiced in the commercial arena.

The legacy voice network has often been an underappreciated attack vector for the cyber security discipline. However, it has never fallen out of favor with the hacker community, because it provides a high success rate for gaining unauthorized and unmonitored access to enterprise data networks and communications infrastructure. The deployment of VoIP technology has only exacerbated the problem. Voice firewall technology solves these issues, enables significant cost savings on voice services, and supports a whole new and critical component of cyber incident response capabilities as have been practiced over the past 20 years on the data network. Any incident response program that does not directly address the voice services vulnerability set is running blind and the costs to security and operations for that lack of 360 degree network visibility and monitoring are increasing daily.
