Ori Eisen, founder and CEO of Trusona

The advent of wide-scale mail-in voting along with the fear of going to polling places due to COVID-19 inspired a company to attempt to devise a secure method for remote voting via smartphones.

Ori Eisen, founder and CEO of Trusona, explains that the firm's new app, which has not yet been tested in an election, is designed to enable voters to use a smartphone to scan driver's licenses as an essential security step.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Eisen discusses:

  • How the new mobile voting app would work;
  • How identification can be confirmed by taking a snapshot of the driver's license;
  • How the app integrates with a state's Department of Motor Vehicles to confirm a voter's identity.

Before launching Trusona, Eisen founded 41st Parameter, an online fraud prevention and detection solution for financial institutions and e-commerce that was acquired by Experian in 2013. He also formerly served as the worldwide fraud director for American Express, focusing on internet and counterfeit fraud.
