Tripwire Announces Partnership with Morgan Cole

Tripwire Inc., the data and network integrity assurance company, today announced a partnership with legal firm Morgan Cole to help ensure that any legal issues of data integrity are managed effectively for prospective and existing Tripwire customers.

"With so many legal guidelines governing business practices today, companies need to be aware of the legal implications with every business decision," commented Ian Tickle, channel manager, UK and Ireland at Tripwire. "Our work with Morgan Cole provides us with a mechanism to offer our customers full support from proven legal experts to answer any questions or concerns that they have with regards to their business activity."

"Change management and security are essential for all businesses but these issues carry a legal minefield of legislation and guidelines. From data protection and company laws through corporate governance codes to specific industry requirements, the picture can be very complex," commented Dominic Hickman, Solicitor at Morgan Cole. "Our partnership with Tripwire is a great opportunity for us to highlight the importance of these issues and to help organisations keen to both protect their assets whilst remaining aware of the legal issues".

The Morgan Cole relationship enables Tripwire and its customers to understand the growing need for security and operations to work together from a legal standpoint. This will involve consideration of legal issues, with a view to providing a more comprehensive and compliant solution for both operations and security departments alike, and the assurance that they can meet their legal responsibilities and obligations.

Morgan Cole will be available on the Tripwire stand (stand 400) at Infosecurity Europe to answer any legal queries and will be attending the Tripwire press roundtable on the 9th April. As part of its partnership with Tripwire, Morgan Cole has developed a whitepaper discussing the legal aspects surrounding system integrity and the associated responsibilities facing businesses. Copies are available on request from 29th April 2003.
