Wave CTO Greg Kazmierczak to Discuss Advanced Malware Detection at Next Week's
Cybersecurity Innovation Forum
Wave Joins JWSecure and Microsoft in Discussing the Importance of
Measuring Device Health
LEE, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/22/14 -- Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ:
WAVX) announced that Chief Technology Officer Greg Kazmierczak will
discuss how organizations can leverage existing technology and
infrastructure to measure and attest device health at the
Cybersecurity Innovation Forum on Jan. 28. Kazmierczak joins
JWSecure's Tom Jones and Microsoft's Atul Shah on the panel, which
will be moderated by Stan Potter of the National Security Agency
"The sophistication and the sheer quantity of threats, coupled with
the enormous number of devices, make it difficult to track and
prevent malware compromises," said Kazmierczak. "Software-based
device health checks can be easily spoofed and provide false
assurance of the health of a device. We'll cover how measurements of
device health -- when safely protected by the Trusted Platform Module
-- can help detect, identify and prevent malware attacks."
The majority of enterprise devices sold in recent years contain the
security hardware needed to perform remote attestation, which can be
harnessed to indicate the health status of a device.
The Cybersecurity Innovation Forum is a three-day event sponsored by
the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence with the Department
of Homeland Security, the National Institute of Standards and
Technology and the National Security Agency as the primary
The event brings content, expertise and momentum from the Trusted
Computing and IT Security Automation conferences into a single event.
Along with several general sessions and keynotes, the Forum comprises
four main tracks -- Trusted Computing, Security Automation,
Information Sharing, and Research.
Wave will be located at booth 417/418, with representatives on hand
to showcase Wave's virtual smart card authentication capabilities,
along with solutions for device health and identity. Wave is
sponsoring an evening reception on Tuesday in the exhibit hall
(Ballroom III and IV, 400 level.)
