ATLANTA, Feb. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- President and CEO of LIGATT Security International, (Pink Sheets: LGTT) Gregory D. Evans continues to be a leading expert in the cyber security industry. According to Nelson Media Research, who analyzes the television audiences, more than 20 million people in the United States have heard Evans speak about cyber crime, as of February 2011. These figures are a low estimate, as they do not include the audiences that have heard Evans speak while on his Cyber Crime College Tour, people who have read his magazine articles, or listeners of his numerous radio appearances.
"I am extremely grateful for the media opportunities that were given to me over the last year. I am fortunate enough to educate others, and I am eager to get started on some of the new projects we have lined up," says Evans.
Gregory Evans has received numerous endorsements from email security companies. "I cannot believe how much money people are willing to pay to put my name on their products. Only in America can someone profit off a negative thing," comments Evans.
Evans' expertise is frequently featured in a variety of media outlets such as, The History Channel's "Modern Marvels". On the program, he demonstrated the capabilities of computer surveillance and the destruction of cyber terrorism, as well as discussed how spyware works and taught viewers how to protect their wireless networks. Evans has made numerous television appearances on CNN, FOX, CBS, The Steve Harvey Project, and many more. He has been featured in numerous newspapers and magazines including the Wall Street Journal, Sun Newspaper, LA Times, USA Today, Black Enterprise, Wells Fargo Business Journal, and JET magazine, to name a few. In 2010, Evans was featured in the book, Who's Who in Black Atlanta, in addition to being awarded a Certified Master Anti-Terrorism Specialist certificate by the Anti Terrorism Accreditation Board.
Evans continuously shares his knowledge by educating his audience at various events. He has spoken at the 2009 National Bar Association Conference in San Diego, California explaining to lawyers and law firms across the nation on how to properly protect themselves, their business and their clients' information. Additionally, Evans has spoken at Global Entrepreneurship Week held at the University of Miami, the 6th Annual 100 Black Men Symposium, the 2010 FAA Cyber Security Seminar, the 2010 Campus and Fire Safety Conference & Expo, Resource Center for Technology Workshop, Ohio State University, Voorhees College, ITT Technical Institute, South Carolina State University, University of South Carolina, University of Dallas, University of Alabama, Florida Atlantic University, University of North Carolina, and Atlanta Technical College.
"This year we are focusing more on Gregory D. Evans, the brand, and striving to re-position Evans on an international platform," comments Katrina Highsmith, Director of Public Relations at LIGATT Security International. "With Evans gaining international media attention, he will be able to spread computer security awareness not only throughout the nation, but world-wide."
In December 2010, Gregory Evans received National Sales Network's 2010 1st Humanitarian Award for his continuing involvement within the community. Evans was honored as an outstanding Humanitarian and recognized as an industry leader who positively impacted the life of others. As a community benefactor, Evans realizes he has overcome the obstacles that block many others from similar accomplishments. He is very much aware of his power to serve as a positive role model for young people who might otherwise gravitate toward unproductive or unlawful lifestyles. He has given away scholarships and laptop computers to two underprivileged young ladies, allowing them the full opportunity to attend college.
As a computer security mogul, Evans has written eight books on high-tech security issues. His first, dedicated to laptop security, was entitled, "Laptop Security Short & Simple." He also authored the first book ever dedicated to spyware, "The Spyware Reference & Study Guide." His current book "How to Become the World's No. 1 Hacker Short & Simple," is selling more than any other computer security book.
"It's not even the end of February, and I have already accomplished nearly half of the goals that I have planned for the first quarter," says Evans. "I'm going to take the computer security industry to another level in 2011."
