Computer Security Institute (CSI) Selects Intridea’s Present.ly As the Official Micro-blogging Tool For CSI 2008

Intridea, Inc. is pleased to announce the Computer Security Institute (CSI), a prestigious community of world-renowned security experts and professionals, has chosen Present.ly to be their official Micro-blogging technology provider for all their web and mobile-based collaboration and communication needs.

At the forefront of security trends and research, CSI provides a forum for security professionals to learn, share and debate the latest thinking on security strategies and technologies.

In September, at the O'Reilly/TechWeb Web 2.0 Expo, Robert Richardson, the Director of the Computer Security Institute, handpicked and dubbed Present.ly the "safe and secure business alternative to mainstream social media tools Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter." Robert, who had evaluated a number of different social media vendors, and is extremely familiar with the space, immediately recognized the positive and distinguishing characteristics of the Present.ly design, including: advance security & permission controls, group functionality, Twitter interoperability, file sharing, an open API, scalability, and an appealing interface --- all of which are of great value to his audience.

On November 15th, members of the CSI organization gathered for their Annual Event, where registered attendees, corporate guests and other interested parties have a full-access-pass to their very own customized instance of Present.ly. The week-long event, which is held at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center (just outside of Washington, DC), is expected to draw 3,000 people, from over 40 countries, and offers an opportunity for CSOs, CTOs, CIOs and alike to gain an understanding of both the technical aspects of security, and how security fits into their overall business and strategic plans.

The CSI Present.ly community will be used to assist individuals with finding like-minded people, relevant information and materials; tracking topic sessions, speakers, and exhibitors; as well as fostering continued conversations after the event is over.
