Chicago, IL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/05/2014 -- Since the launch of the World Wide Web more than twenty-five years ago, cyber security has been a focus point for Internet developers. But despite a staggering amount of effort and resources, it remains something of a digital frontier. Though great strides have been made (with some well-publicized exceptions) in protecting data, far less has been achieved in the area of protecting users. Areas such as ecommerce, social networking, and online dating are rife with examples of fraud, intimidation, and even violence.
Verie, a start-up company in the tech-security space, plans to address this issue. They will be introducing products that help mitigate the risks associated with all manner of Internet interaction, whether transactional or social, by developing a safer web environment for a user to enter.
To aid in this mission, Verie is proud to announce the addition of Hemanshu (Hemu) Nigam to our Executive Team. Hemu is one of the world’s foremost experts in online security, with experience across a wide spectrum of government and private industry. He has served as a federal prosecutor for child and Internet crimes, worked with Microsoft and the international law-enforcement community to create anti-virus programs, and served as Chief Security Officer for News Corporation and MySpace. He is an advisor to both The White House and the United Nations, and has been a featured expert on BBC, Businessweek, CNN, Financial Times, Fox News, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Good Morning America, and the CBS Early Show.
Hemu joins Jim Drolshagen and Anatoly Nirshberg in Verie’s quest to make online interaction more credible, safe and accessible. He joins the Team as Chief Strategist and Director of Internet Security.
Verie aims to solve a weakness in Internet accountability and verification at the individual level by providing the means to enable credibility, trust, and legitimacy in the digital domain. Verie is in the initial phases of development and launch. Stay tuned for more news, information, and releases in the coming future.
