     Data Governance is the process by which companies govern appropriate
 access to their critical data by measuring operational risk and controlling
 security exposures. The Data Governance Council is working to redefine the
 management of data governance policy, the impact of policy on business
 processes and practices, and the enforcement of policy in IT
 infrastructure, information management, and organizational behavior.
 Members of the Council are collaborating on ways to address these issues
 using IBM and business partner solutions and concepts.
     "We are delighted to add Continuity Software to our roster of industry
 leading technology solutions providers, each of whom have demonstrated an
 impressive level of dedication to solving customer data governance
 challenges," said Steven Adler, program director, IBM Data Governance
 Solutions. "As organizations increasingly recognize the value of their
 data, responsible data governance is remaining a top priority for
 enterprises and companies of all sizes."
     "We are honored to have been named to the Data Governance Council and
 look forward to joining with IBM and the other council members to continue
 its efforts to help clarify and resolve today's most prevalent data
 governance challenges," said Gil Hecht, founder and CEO, Continuity
 Software. "Together with the other members on the Council, we will help
 customers to ensure a consistent and reliable enterprise view of their data
 in order to improve their confidence in decision making, their ability to
 comply with internal governance and external compliance regulations, as
 well as their data security."
