Seattle, WA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/07/2020 --ZeroDark is honored to announce the newest member of its Board of Directors: senior information security executive Tarah Wheeler.

"ZeroDark is a brilliant, economical infrastructure solution built solidly on the fundamentals of cybersecurity by the people who invented a huge amount of the cryptography baked into the world's most ubiquitous products," said Wheeler. "In these changing times, I'm thrilled to work with a team of global security experts to bring real encryption to everyone, not just governments and multinational corporations. Everyone deserves privacy and confidentiality, and the right to own their own data."
