Digital identity verification and fraud solutions provider, Socure, has announced that Jordan Burris has joined the company as senior director, product market strategy, public sector. Burris will support Socure’s expanding public sector business, built to support the government’s digital transformation.
Burris has spent more than a decade working to improve the digital trust of organizations and was inspired by Socure’s broad identity coverage for diverse populations and its mission to verify 100% of identities in real time across every transaction on the Internet.
“I joined Socure to promote a more equitable and inclusive identity verification standard for the American public and transform the way public sector benefits and services are accessed and delivered,” said Burris. “Bringing the most accurate and inclusive identity verification and fraud detection platform in the market to the public sector is vital for supporting the government’s digital transformation, stopping fraud, and creating a safe and seamless experience for all.”
Prior to his role at Socure, Burris served at the intersection of policy and delivery as the Chief of Staff in the White House Office of the Federal Chief Information Officer. He was responsible for orchestrating the execution of technology and cybersecurity efforts across two Presidential administrations to include the oversight of the federal government’s $90B technology budget. Burris is a well-regarded strategist and thought leader behind the development of government-wide technology and cybersecurity policy, notably in the domain of identity, credential, and access management (ICAM). Before joining the government in 2017, Burris worked for Deloitte, helping both commercial and public sector clients improve their cybersecurity risk management practices.
Matt Thompson, Socure’s general manager of public sector solutions, said Burris will “drive a meaningful dialogue with government agencies to solve their identity fraud challenges, eliminate massive financial losses, and improve inclusive access to government benefits and services.”
