Building Trust in the Digital Age with Cory Louie, Chief Trust & Security Officer at Checkr
By The Mission
“We’re in the middle of an evolution of how we think about trusting people.” — Cory Louie Cory Louie did not have a traditional path into the tech world. He started his career serving in the Secret Service at the White House. Prior to that, he volunteered with the Electronic Crime Special Agent Program where he was trained “to be a hacker in order to go after the hackers.” Cory now serves as Chief Trust & Security Officer at Checkr, an AI-powered background check platform that helps gig economy companies such as Uber, Lyft, Instacart, and many more run background checks quickly. Checkr is helping businesses scale by giving employers the ease of faster turnaround while also giving interviewees more visibility on the data shared with their potential employer. “We are really utilizing technology to empower decisions for fairness. A lot of people think of background checks as keeping the bad out but another part of it is ‘how do we empower the decision-makers with the right type of data to make the right decisions on hiring.’” On this episode, Ian sits down with Cory to discuss his unique career path from law enforcement to the tech sector, what CEOs and CIOs can do to build trust with their users, and what opportunities AI and machine learning will have in security going forward. — We have a new partnership with b8ta!
