eCrypt Technologies Taps Former Congressman To Be Board Chairman

eCrypt Technologies welcomes former congressman Curt Weldon as chairman of the eCrypt Technologies Board of Directors.

Weldon's initial mandate is to populate eCrypt's board of directors and international advisory board with technology, security, business and government experts from around the world. Drawing from his vast contact base that he developed during his tenure as a congressman – he was vice chair of the Homeland Security and the House Armed Services committees – Weldon has already commenced hand picking people to join him in developing eCrypt's business and executing the company's business plan.

Weldon has also developed relationships with world leaders, heads of state and business leaders from around the world and has begun to introduce eCrypt Technologies to them. With his vast global contact base and business experience, Weldon brings with him nearly 30 years of government and security relationships that provide eCrypt with invaluable expertise, insight, and knowledge as it builds its business this year.

Weldon comes to eCrypt at a particularly exciting time: the company has opened early access to its Secure Communications Service, which is quickly being adopted by the business and security communities as well as private individuals.

"A man with Mr. Weldon's wealth of contacts, experience, technical savvy and leadership skills is a welcome addition to any board. We are most honored and fortunate that he has joined our team," said Brad Lever, the company’s CEO.

Since becoming chairman, Weldon has visited India as the keynote speaker at the Future of Financial Markets Conference, and also has had high-level meetings with several large telecom companies in Baku, Azerbaijan.

"During my tenure with the U.S. government, I funded top military and Internet privacy technologies and can say that eCrypt's technologies are as good as and in many ways much better than anything I have seen. eCrypt will provide protection for government, corporations and individuals around the world against cyber attacks and against the invasion of privacy. We have had exciting responses from directors of the CIA and the National Security Agency,” Weldon said.
