Manchester — May 21, 2009 — Courion® Corporation, leaders in access governance, provisioning and compliance, today announced that UK general manager Stuart Hodkinson, will front a web seminar looking at how implementing effective access controls can help protect your company's IT resources.

Hodkinson will be presenting in conjunction with respected Infosecurity magazine technical editor Steve Gold and Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) representative Peter Wood.

Access control is a critical part of a sound IT security approach, yet is considered a low priority by some businesses and totally overlooked by others. As the number of internal and external threats grow − buoyed by growing malware attacks from Eastern Europe and Asia − along with the risks associated with headcount reductions or mergers and acquisition activity, companies are refocusing their attention on security best practice to bolster their IT security defences and maintain data, application and user security.

Hodkinson will discuss the concept of 'roles' in the world of access control and how the technology can be tapped as the foundation of a solid access assurance programme. He will also explore best practice in access control, explain why access assurance is important in the modern IT security arena and provide insight into the latest threats facing enterprise IT systems, both public facing and internal.
