WASHINGTON, June 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, ID Experts President and CEO Tom Kelly briefed U.S. Senate staffers and other decision makers with a presentation on "Social Networks: How to Make Your Social Safe Because Others Won't" during the U.S. Senate's Cybersecurity Monthly Roundup. The Monthly Roundup is designed to educate Senate staffers with the pressing needs facing America's online systems and consumer safety.
Tom Kelly, president and CEO of ID Experts, commented, "Many Americans live in fear that their personal data is compromised, stolen or manipulated just by using social media and other digital platforms. It's essential that Congress knows how to take concrete steps to protect people's privacy. Further, it is important that Members of Congress and their staff members know what steps to take to protect their own platforms. I'm honored to have been chosen to inform U.S. legislators and their staff on one of today's most pressing issues."
