Ecora Announces Regional Executive Seminar Series

Technology Experts Share Valuable Lessons for Driving Down Compliance Costs

Portsmouth, N.H. – May 8, 2007 – Ecora Software, a leading provider of change and compliance reporting solutions to ensure IT infrastructures are secure, compliant and effective, today announced an executive seminar series that will take place across the United States over the next two months. These seminars have been designed to provide executives practical advice for implementing a risk-based framework, approach, and technology solution to achieve continuous compliance and improve business performance.

The seminars will demonstrate practical ways for IT organizations to avoid unnecessary costs associated with documenting security controls and meeting multiple compliance requirements. Automated solutions for managing and validating enterprise-wide configuration changes, particularly those associated with financial systems, will also be discussed. Speakers will share key lessons in how to integrate business and IT initiatives to help IT deliver greater business value. Attendees will discover how to establish and automate sustainable compliance best practices, without breaking their IT budget.

In addition, those in attendance will benefit from the “real world” experiences of other IT professionals like themselves who've successfully faced the challenges of increasing compliance demands in their organization. These technology leaders will share how they've leveraged industry-recognized best practices with automated technologies to significantly reduce their overall audit costs.

“Through the history of our company, we have worked alongside premier Fortune 500 organizations to help them get greater control over their IT organization and overall business,” said Joe Fiorentino, CEO and President of Ecora Software. “After many years of working alongside our customers, we can now share best practices with other organizations that need to meet multiple regulatory compliance standards and ensure their infrastructure is secure. These will be highly interactive sessions that should result in a great deal of knowledge being shared among participants in addition to what is shared by the presenters.”
