Telos to Fill Seat on Open Compliance and Ethics Group’s Technology Council

Company Brings Expertise In Federal Government Compliance To Assist
Commercial Organizations To Abide By Government-Type Regulations On The
Horizon

Business Wire

ASHBURN, Va. & PHOENIX -- March 12, 2009

Open Compliance and Ethics Group (OCEG) has invited Telos^® Corporation to
fill a seat on its prestigious Technology Council.

Additionally, Telos will participate on the Council’s Governance, Risk and
Compliance (GRC)- Extensible Markup Language (XML) Working Group and its
IT for GRC Road Map Group. OCEG, a non-profit “think tank,” is widely
recognized as the standards body for establishing best practices in the
GRC space. OCEG is the provisional jurisdiction authorized to establish
GRC-XML within the eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL)
organization.

“Telos has been well received for a long time in the government space,”
said Ben Apple, director of Information Assurance Business Management at
Telos. “Bringing our experience in dealing with the management of IT risk
in the government market to bear on the GRC complexities of the commercial
sector will benefit commercial organizations as they prepare for the
eventuality of government-type compliance regulations.”

This is especially true for companies in the financial sector, which will
likely see these types of regulations imposed more quickly due to the
provisions of the Troubled Asset Relief Program.

“We are very pleased to have Telos Corporation as a member of the
Technology Council,” said Carole Switzer, president of OCEG. “The company
is one of the premier thought leaders in this space, and the experience it
brings from the government sector will help advance best practices for GRC
technology support in all organizations, regardless of the type of
business they do,” he said. “We also look forward to working with Telos to
expand use of the OCEG GRC Capability Model within the government sector.”
