Live, Virtual & On-Demand Ensure Something for Everyone

NEW YORK, April 30, 2010 - A postponement and repurposing of CSI SX was announced today by CSI/UBM
International Media - management of the CSI SX Event scheduled to take place
in San Francisco over the dates of May 26-27, 2010. "The feedback from our
members regarding our educational offerings indicates that the content is
unparalleled and that we have been right on target with our programming.
However, method of delivery and timing need to be addressed and so many are
requesting not only the live information exchange - but a method to
participate virtually and on-demand," said Robert Richardson, CSI Director.

CSI's virtual video conferences and training programs have exceeded all
projected numbers with post-event surveys indicating that the content and
industry icons speaking continue to be unmatched by any other information
security offering. CSI SX is scheduled to move forward with its new
"multi-dimensional package" to ensure that both CSI members and CSI patrons
get the education, content and training they so desire in a format that fits
their individual needs.

Exact dates will be announced shortly, however, it is confirmed that CSI
SX will have two components:

    1) VIRTUAL CONFERENCE: featuring programming tracks that include business
       agility & scalable security; mobile enterprise & remote delivery; web
       application security & the most dangerous programming errors.

    2) CSI SX - LIVE: a full one day program that will kick-off with the
       state of the art re-enactment of a live server attack: Breaking the
       Typical Virtual Infrastructure / Private Cloud, featuring Norwich
       University's Cyberweapons Range and Cybercadet Red Team.

Detailed information will be available by mid-May. Educational
programming in the future event will continue to offer all that was
originally scheduled. To review original information visit
