Y2K Experts Poll Results to Be Released Conducted By CIO Magazine, ISACA, & Dr. Ed Yardeni's Y2K Center

FRAMINGHAM, Mass., June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- An informal public-interest coalition of CIO magazine, Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA), and Dr. Ed Yardeni's Y2K Center is presently conducting a Y2K Experts Poll. Results will be released at a news conference on Friday, June 18, 1999 at 11:00 AM. The news conference will be held at the Deutsche Bank in New York City -- 31 West 52nd Street on the 5th floor. [Limited seating. Advance credentials necessary.]

The Y2K Experts Poll is being conducted among Y2K professionals around the world, with first-hand knowledge of the Y2K problem. The survey specifically addresses Y2K corporate issues of readiness, confidence, third party failures, contingency planning, legal issues, economic impact, and the personal at-home actions of executives close to the process. Sample Poll questions include:

-- How far along is your organization in completing the Y2K problem?

-- Will any of your mission-critical systems fail or malfunction as a

result of Y2K?

-- On the basis of an assessment, rate your confidence in your electricity


-- Personally, how does your overall assessment of Y2K compare to three

months ago?

-- Personally, do you plan to stockpile extra food at home; have extra

cash at home; and how will Y2K influence your stock investments?

-- Personally, indicate the likely economic impact of Y2K.

Poll results are expected to help the public and their policy officials assess the readiness of organizations around the world.
