A Security Veteran

I received a mail today from EcKey with an invite to their function at ISC West on April 15th.

I get lots of these, so no big deal, but this one caught my attention as it was being billed as a benefit for the Wounded Warriors. How dare any company use the Wounded Warrior Foundation as a ploy to lure in prospective customers to their product. As a Vietnam Era Veteran, and a Security professional with 40 years in the industry, I take great offense to this marketing scheme.

If their website had a banner indicating that a specific portion of all of their sales went to benefit this organization, and publish how much to date they have given, it would be a different matter completely. But to use our wounded veterans as a marketing tool is unacceptable. I will do all I can to make it known about this company's underhanded advertising policies.
