BindView Hosts 2005 State of Regulatory Compliance Summit BindView, a Houston-based IT security compliance solutions provider, will host the 2005 State of Regulatory Compliance Summit at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, July 19, 2005, at 10 a.m. EST. Being held around the third anniversary of the enactment of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, the Summit will include a panel discussion featuring Arthur Levitt, former Chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission; James C. Foster, Computer Sciences Corporation's deputy director of global security solution management; Everett C. Johnson, international president of the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA); John Parmigiani, former chairman of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Security Standards implementation team; Dave A. Richards, president of The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA); and BindView Chairman and CEO Eric J. Pulaski.
The Summit's panel of experts and executives will discuss today's regulatory environment, providing opinions on critical issues and concerns, as well as prescriptive guidance and insights on how to manage in an era of heightened scrutiny and tighter regulation. "Three years after the passage of Sarbanes-Oxley, U.S. business finds itself having to come to grips with a complex array of new regulations. While the goals of these recent laws are certainly laudatory, the cost of compliance is also enormous, with 2005 expenses expected to hit the $15 billion watermark," said Steve Kahan, BindView senior vice president of worldwide marketing, in the press release. "As a result, organizations are searching for new methodologies to curb the rising costs and contain the complexity."
