iSign International appoints Dr. Alvin Rohrs as member of advisory board
Biometric signature security firm iSign International Inc. has appointed Dr. Alvin Rohrs, a long-time veteran of the NGO not-for-profit sector, to the company’s advisory board.
Dr. Alvin Rohrs has joined the advisory board of iSign International to introduce iSign’s digital security solutions to and prevent the hacking of the many companies, universities, government agencies and other organizations with whom he has relationships.
“It is exciting to partner with iSign to help introduce their incredible cybersecurity products to businesses, organizations and consumers,” Dr. Rohrs said. “Preventing hacking and giving individuals and companies the ability to choose who is allowed into their computers will save these organizations and individuals millions of dollars and is a great win for personal privacy and freedom.”
In 2016 Dr. Rohrs retired after serving 34 years as the CEO of Enactus, an international NGO which strives to unite university students, academic, and business leaders to transform lives and shape a more sustainable world through entrepreneurial action.
During his career Dr. Rohrs expanded Enactus from 18 universities in the United States to 1,700 universities in 36 countries.
His work at Enactus impacted the leadership skills of over 800,000 students and improved the lives of over 18,000,000 people.
Dr. Rohrs was recognized by Inc. magazine and Ernst & Young as the “National Entrepreneur of the Year Supporter of Entrepreneurship” in 1995 and he has cultivated a close relationship with the startup community ever since.
“We are thrilled that Dr. Rohrs is going to contribute to our company his exceptional experience and leadership,” Gerard Munera, the Chairman of iSign International Inc., said. “His global network of trusted business, government and NGO relationships he has been building over the years is quite remarkable and will help us accelerate the success of iSign International.”
Earlier this year, iSign International released its iSecure Captive Portal (ICP) 2017, designed to provide users access to networks and the Internet via biometric signature recognition.
