RSA Security President and CEO to Open Event

WASHINGTON D.C. - Arthur W. Coviello, Jr., President and CEO of RSA Security, will give the opening address on the first full day, August 21st, of the 12th annual Progress & Freedom Foundation Aspen Summit. The premier gathering is scheduled this year for August 20th to the 22nd at the St. Regis in Aspen, Colorado. Coviello will address privacy and security from a broad perspective, discussing how a culture of trust can be fostered on the Internet and the challenges involved in securing identities in the digital economy. Coviello will join other high caliber speakers and panelists from the technology community to discuss topics related to this year's Summit theme, "Global Competition, Convergence & Culture."

Coviello, President and CEO of RSA Security Inc., has over three decades of experience working in the technology industry. Joining the company in 1995, Coviello has helped to position RSA Security as a leader in digital authentication, encryption and anti-fraud protection. It was recently announced that RSA Security has agreed to be acquired in upcoming months by EMC Corporation. After the merger is completed, Coviello will serve as an Executive Vice President of EMC and President of the EMC Information Security Division. Coviello also currently serves on the Board of Directors at Sana Security and Crossbeam Systems. Prior to joining RSA Security, Coviello served as Chief Operating Officer of CrossComm Corporation, an internetworking vendor, and held various executive positions in the technology industry.

Coviello also serves as a resource and advocate for national public and private cyber-security initiatives. He currently serves as Co-Chair of TechNet New England and is a founding Board Member of the Cyber Security Industry Alliance (CSIA).

Monday's keynote address from one of the leading security experts is one of two information security related events at the Aspen Summit. One of three off-the-record working dinners scheduled for Tuesday is titled "Privacy and Security: To Regulate or Not To Regulate?" Dinner attendees and experts will discuss pertinent topics, such as privacy and security, communications reform and intellectual property issues, in an informal, relaxed setting. More information on working dinner participants will be released at a later date.
