Atlanta, GA, May 09, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Trust Stamp, an Atlanta headquartered provider of artificial intelligence based identity services, welcomes John Bridge as the company’s Director of Financial Crime Services. Bridge brings 34 years of law enforcement experience, including 25 years with United States Marshals Service where he served as Senior Inspector/Chief Inspector of Financial Surveillance.
Bridge is a thought-leader in the field of financial crime investigation and is an active member of professional bodies including the International Association of Financial Crimes Investigators (IAFCI) where he previously held an executive position, the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS), and the High Technology Crime Investigation Association (HTCIA). Bridge currently serves as co-chair of the Cyber Fraud Industry Group (CFIG) for the IAFCI.
When asked about his time with the United States Marshals Service, Bridge said, “I enjoyed finding ways to incorporate technology and develop private partnerships to accomplish our missions. I was a founding member of an investigative unit within the Marshals Service that assisted in many high-profile investigations. It was challenging, but rewarding.”
As Director of Financial Crime Services, John serves as an ambassador for Trust Stamp by developing and supporting existing and new private and government relationships as well as contributing to product design. Bridge said, “It is exciting to join a company that leverages technology to solve security and identity-related issues. Trust Stamp is a leader in applying innovative technology to solve real-world issues. I am pleased to have the opportunity to draw on my government experience to help create solutions to issues faced by both private sector companies and government agencies.”
“The entire Trust Stamp team is thrilled to have John on board!” says Andrew Gowasack, Trust Stamp CEO. He went on to say, “John’s experience makes him uniquely qualified to support our collaboration with public and private sector security experts to combat identity theft and fraud.”
Trust Stamp’s proprietary biometric hashing technology was deployed in 2018 as part of a project (in collaboration with Conference of Western Attorneys General and the US-Mexico Alliance Partnership) to assist the Attorneys General of New Mexico and Guanajuato Mexico in identifying victims of human trafficking. Bridge's experience is particularly relevant to these efforts as his early career with the United States Marshals Service included serving as a Sex Offender Investigations Coordinator. He also received recognition from both the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) and the United States Secret Service for exceptional work.
About Trust Stamp:
Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, Trust Stamp uses facial (and other) biometrics with patented Artificial Intelligence powered “proof of life” and presentation-attack detection tools to create a proprietary non-PII Evergreen Hash TM. The Hash is unique to the user but cannot be reverse engineered. For the purpose of GDPR and similar privacy legislation, the Hash is "anonymized data" and is immune to data breaches. Each Hash is compared to Trust Stamp’s proprietary Identity Lake TM, video-streams, photo-ID & data-mined images to establish a subject's identity and can be augmented with pivot points to other relevant data. Trust Stamp technology is used in multiple industries, including banking, fintech, KYC/AML compliance, real estate, travel/hospitality and law enforcement.
