Chief Solutions Officer, Lawtrust

Maeson Maherry is the solutions director of Etion Secure (incorporating LAWtrust), a business that specialises in trust services such as Advanced Electronic signature solutions, positive identity and encryption in business systems. Maherry made his foray into the emerging field of internet security in 1997, when he became a specialist in public key encryption and digital signatures. A technology expert with 20 years-experience in cybersecurity, Maeson has been part of the industry from the pioneering days of Public Key Infrastructure, right through to the global, legal recognition of standardised digital signatures. He has consulted in this field for all the major banks in South Africa, Germany and the Middle East, and has been involved in the design and implementation of number of trust centres and PKI projects. Maeson's interest and expertise in the field led him to co-author a book on e-commerce and e-commerce security as well as numerous whitepapers and articles on the topic.

As co-founder of LAWtrust, which was acquired by Alt-listed Etion Limited in 2018, he has donned several hats: first as the business development director and then as the solutions director and CIO. He firmly believes in standards, legal principles and pragmatism in designing electronic signature solutions that change the way we do business for the better. Maeson has held many senior leadership roles and has focused on designing and marketing technically complex solutions in a way that is understood by business and government decision makers.

Maeson Maherry will be speaking on the following topic:

Leveraging application integrity management to prevent insider threats

Insider threats or employee fraud can have a devastating impact on a company's bottom line performance because of the legitimate access they have to critical functions in business systems. This presentation will cover a method of applying security technology to change the behaviour and prevent the occurrence of insider fraud in the first place. Maeson will reveal how experience built up in national security and financial applications over the years has led to the development of an approach to application integrity coupled with human integrity, through the use of biometric strong authentication, along with digitally-signed and timestamped data, which is then retained as original evidence without the risk of repudiation from the user.
