WiredTrust was launched in 2006 in the face of a growing need for social media companies to show they were doing something about universal public concerns that systems were not as safe as they could be.
Parry Aftab grasped the challenge and launched WiredTrust as a response, a company able to work closely and confidentially on a commercial basis with any company wishing to make their processes and systems safer for their clients and staff.
As an internationally recognized expert in her field, Parry Aftab is able to use her global connections with experts at the highest level, governments and law enforcement agencies to pull together teams of consultants from various backgrounds and disciplines at short notice.
With a global reach and offices in Canada and New York, WiredTrust is well placed to meet your needs as a trusted advisor, business partner and expert in the field of social media risk management.
Parry Aftab was one of the first lawyers in the world to practice Internet law. Over the years, she has represented many of the leaders from the entertainment, Internet and consumer brand industries. Known for her ability to “think outside of the box,” she quickly became a leader in the emerging field of Internet law and policy and helped establish standards within the Internet industry.
While she is an expert in risk management issues across digital technologies for all demographics, most of her time is now devoted to issues and technologies impacting children and families online.
