Apani Networks' Gordon Benzie is a Featured Speaker on Government Regulations and Compliance at InfoSecurity Europe 2006

Will Emphasize Securing Data Over Achieving Compliance in Developing Appropriate Corporate Security Policies

LONDON and BREA, Calif., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Apani Networks, the leading enterprise network security software provider focused on securing inside the network perimeter, today announced that Gordon Benzie, a product marketing executive, is a featured speaker at the InfoSecurity Europe 2006 in London. Benzie will address why the current batch of regulations should not be a driving force of your IT security strategy. Instead, focus on protecting your data instead of defending the perimeter in the wake of the growing number of international government and regulatory compliance initiatives.

The session, entitled "The Regulations Are Coming -- but Forget About Compliance," will take place on Thursday, April 27, at 14:00. Apani will also be exhibiting at InfoSecurity Europe in Stand number #324.

Benzie will emphasize how current and proposed regulations should not be the driving force of an organization's IT security program. Benzie will advocate that safeguarding valuable customer and financial data with the most effective security technology available today should be paramount to regulatory compliance concerns. He will cover significant market trends and how they impact the security of confidential data, providing an overview of the risks businesses face when a data breach occurs.

Mr. Benzie has over 12 years experience in the network security and telecommunications industries, preceded by 10 years in the financial services and real estate industries. His experience includes the early growth years of wireless communications, the Internet and now the next generation of network security services. Mr. Benzie joined Apani Networks in early 2005, with a focus on examining market strategies, understanding industry trends and educating the organization on their implications. Mr. Benzie holds BA degrees in Economics and Cultural Anthropology from the University of California and an MBA from Pepperdine University.
