New Company Positioned as an Industry Leader in Information Security Management

Minneapolis, MN, October 19, 2007 --( Orange Parachute made its national debut in front of 650 attendees and nearly 50 exhibitors at the IT Security World Conference last month in San Francisco. A new division of the parent company, HotSkills, Inc., Orange Parachute continues to lead the firm’s management consulting, recruiting and audit services for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS).

“After operating for five years under the parent company, we were pleased to launch Orange Parachute in front of a multitude of information security professionals and CISO executives at one of the industry’s most widely respected conferences, “says company Founder and CEO Travis Hyde. “Given high booth traffic and interest generated at the show, we feel validation for our service offerings and are excited to move forward with the new brand. As an industry leader in the ISMS market, Orange Parachute provides proven solutions that empower clients with innovative approaches to information security management, auditing, assessment and training.”

“We consistently heard the same message during the conference – information security officers and executives are struggling to determine how to deal with risk management, compliance and how to manage their information security initiatives. They are seeking solutions that will align these initiatives and minimize risk in day to day operations,” says Erkonen, who serves as Orange Parachute’s director of client relationships. “Orange Parachute is uniquely positioned to respond to these challenges by delivering a framework and methodology that has consistently proven to bring outstanding results and value to our clients.”
