Fortify hosts pre-screening of cybercrime documentary.

Fortify : 09 January, 2008  (Technical Article)
The New Face of Cybercrime highlights the current state of criminality using computers with responses from the security industry and can be seen at previews hosted by Fortify in the UK and USA.
Fortify Software will present the world premiere of a new documentary, "The New Face of Cybercrime," in private screenings at three cities, San Francisco, New York, and London this month. An expert panel discussion about cybercrime and a reception will follow each screening.

This ground-breaking film by Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker Frederic Golding highlights the impact cybercrime has on consumers and businesses. When sensitive or private data gets into the wrong hands, the loss is tallied not only in billions of dollars, but in consumer trust as well. "The New Face of Cybercrime" showcases security experts, hackers, and executives discussing the evolving threats to information security and the need for security measures that are several steps ahead of these threats. Featured in the film are these experts:.

* Matthew Devost, CEO, The Terrorism Research Centre.
* James Routh, CISO, The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation.
* Lt Col Jeff Salyards, USAF, Director, Defense Computer Forensics Laboratory.
* Mike Ullman, Chairman and CEO, JC Penney Company.

"Fortify Software commissioned this film because we, along with many other experts, believe that the threat of cybercrime has reached unprecedented levels," said John Jack, president and CEO of Fortify Software. "No one is safe. To defend your systems, you must know not only who might attack you now but also who might attack you in the future and how. We're talking about a level of protection where every application itself will need to be impervious to attack, so the information behind it is protected."

Following the screenings, panels of security experts will discuss what executives must know to protect their organizations' most critical assets against the growing threat of cybercrime. These panels will include the following authorities:.

- Marco Bavassano, Director, Telecom Italia.
- Mark Hughes - Director BT Goup, Security.
- Gary McGraw, CTO, Cigital - Author of Software Security.
- Roger Thornton - Founder & CTO of Fortify Software.
- Mike Evans - Security Manager, Visa.

"The New Face of Cybercrime" will be screened at the following locations and dates:.

* San Francisco, Metreon, Private Theater— January 17.
* New York, Tribeca Grand Hotel—January 24.
* London, Apollo West End—January 29.
