The Social-Engineer Podcast

Today on the Social-Engineer Podcast: The Security Awareness Series, Chris is joined by Aaron Painter. Aaron is the CEO of Nametag Inc., the company who invented "Sign in with ID" as a more secure alternative to passwords.

 

After watching too many friends and family members fall victim to identity theft and online fraud, Aaron assembled a team of security experts to build the next generation of online account protection. Nametag has a mission to bring authenticity to the internet and enable people to build more trusted relationships. They believe security should be centered around you, the user, and that your identity - like your privacy - is a valuable asset worth protecting.

 

Having lived and worked in six countries across four continents, Aaron exemplifies a new generation of global leaders. In his 2017 best-selling book, LOYAL, he describes his key to leadership: fostering a culture of listening. Through codifying and implementing a business framework of listening, Aaron has built success across the world. [May 20, 2024]
