DWS Defense Systems, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of DataWorld Solutions, Inc. (PinkSheets: DWLD - News) is proud to announce that former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard B. Kerik, CEO of Giuliani-Kerik LLC, NYC, has joined their advisory board. In his position as advisor to DWS Defense Systems, Mr. Kerik will help guide DWS in responding to the post 9/11 security and defense needs in today's world.

"We are proud and honored to have Mr. Kerik join us and believe his expertise and world-renowned experience in counter-terrorism and the security marketplace will enhance DWS Defense Systems emergence in the security arena," says CEO Daniel McPhee.

Mr. Kerik, who recently returned from Iraq and was responsible for the reconstitution of the Iraqi Ministry of Interior said, "I look forward to working with DWS, a company that is focusing on the security needs of the international community, government and corporate America."

DWS Defense Systems was created in response to the growing security concerns expressed by the clients of DataWorld. In reaction to acts of domestic and international terrorism, businesses are searching for better ways to protect their buildings, and more importantly, to better protect the people who work in or visit these locations. DWS will offer one such solution - high quality, state of the art security glass and the associated security system - that will have numerous potential applications. Glass currently used in many buildings may potentially cause significant injury if shattered. The DWS solution can minimize this problem and provide greater security to the building's occupants. The in-house architect and engineering team at DWS, who have over 80 years of combined experience in the security and defense field, will be able to assess and customize a turnkey security solution for any type or size of business. DWS Defense Systems and its highly skilled team will design, develop, install and market specialty products and equipment for the security needs of domestic and international businesses. The company is already in negotiations with a number of Fortune 1000 companies to provide security solutions that will be tailor made to suit each company's particular needs.
