More Than 30 Years Experience in Security and Law Enforcement to Verint

WEYBRIDGE, SURREY 25 March 2003 - Verint Systems Inc. (NASDAQ:VRNT), a leading provider of analytical solutions for communications interception, digital video security and surveillance, and enterprise business intelligence, announced today that Lord Condon has joined its Advisory Board.

Lord Condon began his career in 1967 when he joined the Metropolitan Police Service in the UK. He rose through the ranks with his police career culminating in his appointment as Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service in 1993, a position he held for seven years until his retirement in 2000. He was appointed at the age of 45, which made him the youngest Commissioner in 150 years. Amongst his many achievements in this role, Lord Condon significantly improved the anti-corruption programme for the Metropolitan Police Service and managed the Metropolitan Police Service through one of its most turbulent post-war periods in terms of terrorism on the streets of London and elsewhere in the UK. He was awarded the Queens Police Medal in 1998 and knighted in 1994. In 2001 he was made a Life Peer.

Lord Condon holds other positions including, Chairman of the Independent Complaints Panel of The Portman Group; Director of the International Cricket Commission Anti-Corruption Unit and non-executive director of Securicor. Lord Condon is also a Life Member of the Association of Chief Police Officers.
