ATandT Launches Security News Network

AT&T wants to help IT professionals stay well-informed about network security. At Interop New York on Wednesday, the telecommunications giant launched the Internet Security News Network (ISNN), a round-the-clock broadcast network that will report on breaking security news, give insight on how to secure IT networks, and hold security forums hosted by prominent security experts, said Ed Amoroso, chief security officer at New York-based AT&T.

Amoroso announced the online news service during a keynote speech, in which he urged software engineers to raise their standards of excellence in addressing security issues. He said most of the blame for IT security problems can be attributed to weaknesses in software that open the door for malicious activity. Thus far, software engineering hasnít matured to the level where it can prevent hackers from creating and launching computer viruses, he noted.
