Information Security Media Group (ISMG) Announces Record-Breaking Traffic on Finance Vertical Websites Information Security Media Group (ISMG) Announces Record-Breaking Traffic on Finance Vertical Websites Princeton, NJ - November 3, 2008 - Information Security Media Group, Corp. - Information Security Media Group (ISMG) announces a record-breaking number of page views for October 2008 for its two flagship finance vertical websites, BankInfoSecurity.com and CUInfoSecurity.com.

So far in 2008, BankInfoSecurity.com has seen a 140% monthly page view increase, while CUInfoSecurity.com has seen a 170% increase in page views. In addition, the average time per session has dramatically increased from 7 minutes and 54 seconds for the two sites in January 2008 to 13 minutes 48 seconds in October 2008 - a 175% increase.

"We have seen increases in almost every website traffic metric from month-to-month throughout 2008, and we expect that trend to continue throughout the rest of the year and into 2009," says Mike D'Agostino, Marketing Manager with ISMG, which launched BankInfoSecurity.com in early 2006 and CUinfoSecurity.com in early 2007. "The breadth and quality of our content is the main reason we are seeing such increases in traffic and growth."

The recent growth spurt is attributable to several factors, including:

Additionally, ISMG's sites have established themselves as an industry resource for the Identity Theft Red Flags Rule, with which banking institutions must comply as of Nov. 1. News and updates on the rule's examination procedures drew heavy traffic as banking/security leaders prepared for the compliance deadline.

"Even though we have traditionally been seen as a resource for articles and insights on risk management and information security-specific content, we continually cover many other current topics vital to the banking industry, and we're constantly adding to our suite of content offerings" adds Tom Field, ISMG's Editorial Director. "Our new Banking Today section, for instance, has seen coverage on all the latest news regarding the current economic crisis, and this has added significantly to our overall traffic increase."
