Congratulations Sandi on joining TRUSTe

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 14-Jun-2008 14:27

One of my Australian friends, Sandi Hardmeier has joined TRUSTe as an Online Compliance Researcher.

I've met Sandi many times around the world - a couple of times in Seattle for the Microsoft MVP Summit, a couple of times in Las Vegas during the CES, in Singapore for a Microsoft Windows Vista Lab, and somewhere else I can't remember.

From the official press release:


Ms. Hardmeier is a recognized and widely sought after industry expert in the field of malware and malvertizing and their impact on consumer privacy and security. She will play a key role in TRUSTe’s development of improved network monitoring strategies while providing customers with expert insight and recommendations to combat existing and emerging Web threats such as spyware, computer viruses, and other types of malware.

“Sandi has been studying malware since 2000, and has watched its metamorphosis from simplistic, easy to remove adware into the sophisticated crime-motivated products we see today,” said Fran Maier, executive director of TRUSTe. “Sandi will help us build our expertise in the important intersection between online trust, privacy and security.”

Sandi has been a Microsoft Most Valued Professional (MVP) since 1999, specializing in Internet Explorer and Internet Security as it pertains to business and consumers. She also has an array of published work and is the author of www.msmvps.com/spywaresucks (a Web site dedicated to teaching Internet users about the latest risks to their online safety and how to stay safe when surfing the Web); http://www.ie-vista.com/ (dedicated to providing technical support to users of IE7 and IE8); and http://inetexplorer.mvps.org/ (dedicated to providing technical support to users of IE6 and earlier).


Well done Sandi! See you around...
