LayerOne 2008 Pre-registration opens, first round of speakers announced

 Seattle, WA (March 3, 2008) As we get closer to this year's LayerOne 
 event, we have released the names of the first three speakers for the 
 conference, in addition to the opening of pre-registration.

 Our first speakers come from very different backgrounds, which 
 illustrate the diverse nature of Information Assurance within our 
 modern society.

 Dave 'h1kari' Hulton is a seasoned 'hardware hacker' and the organizer 
of the annual Toorcon (www.toorcon.org) security conferences in Seattle 
 and San Diego. David will be presenting on intercepting mobile phone 
 and GSM traffic utilizing techniques and hardware that until recently 
 had been priced out of the range of most individuals and companies.

 John 'jur1st' Benson is a lawyer from Kansas City, MO who specializes 
 in electronic discovery and is also the chairman of the Kansas City 
 Metropolitan Bar Association Computer Law and Technology Committee. 
 John will be discussing how the electronic discovery process works, why 
 it is costing corporations millions of dollars (and why it doesn't have 
 to), and what attendees need to know in order to operate within this 
 new legal environment.

 David 'Video Man' Bryan is computer security consultant for NetSPI and 
a senior organizer of the annual DEFCON (www.defcon.org) computer 
 security conference in Las Vegas, NV. David will be presenting on the 
 potential threats and vulnerabilities surrounding Voice over IP 
 telephony. Topics covered will include voice privacy issues, quality of 
 service, and mitigating strategies for companies and individuals 
 looking to take advantage of this technology.

 LayerOne is continuing to look for additional speakers for this year's 
 conference. If you are interested in speaking, please visit our site 
(www.layerone.info) to view our Call for Papers. 

 LayerOne has also opened pre-registration for this year's event. 
 Pre-registration is 80 dollars (USD) and covers both days of the 
 conference as well as the hospitality reception on Saturday night. 
 Seating is limited to 250 attendees due to the size of our conference 
 area. In the event that there are still seats available after 
 pre-registration closes, tickets will be available at the door on the 
 day of the event however the cost will now be 100 dollars (USD).

 We look forward to providing you with the high quality content and 
 information you have come to expect from us. See you in May!

                                               -The LayerOne Team
