Symantec Corp. (Nasdaq: SYMC) the world leader in Internet security technology,
announced today Stephen Trilling, director of Advanced Concepts Group, will speak
at the Spring 2000 Internet Service Provider Conference (ISPCON) in Orlando,

to 5:45 p.m., titled "Weaving Security into the Internet."

today for everyone connected to the Internet," Trilling said. "Today's computer

service, in order to protect all of their users from any potential attack."

infrastructure companies, and Web-based communications experts. The conference

practices to security issues.
