Parry Aftab to Speak at CARU's Conference


 

Parry Aftab was identified as "the leading expert in cybercrime in the United States," by the Boston Herald.

Jules Polonetsky, AOL's Chief Privacy Officer, said Parry was "part supermom, part Wonder Woman and part Oprah."

The US Congress formally honored her work in cyber-safety in 2005 and in 1999 UNESCO appointed her to head up its online child protection project for the United States.

Parry Aftab is known for her ability to "think outside of the box." Over the years Aftab has represented many of the leaders from the entertainment, Internet and consumer brand industries. Recently, Parry founded WiredTrust, a risk management consulting firm, to advise industry policy makers.  When Internet policy, best practices and safety is involved, Parry Aftab is the first name mentioned.
