Ellison Anne Williams, CEO of Enveil, Privacy Enhancing Technologies Make Entirely New Things Possible

This week on The Encrypted Economy my guest is Ellison Anne Williams, the founder and CEO of Enveil, a Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PET) start-up. She founded the company in 2016 after spending 12 years at the NSA studying the technologies that allow Enveil to encrypt data while in use. Ellison Anne has created cutting edge use cases for homomorphic encryption and other PETs which listeners of The Encrypted Economy will be very familiar with. As a result of this innovation, Enveil has been recognized by organizations like the World Economic Forum and Cybersecurity Ventures.  Don’t miss this episode of The Encrypted Economy as we continue our journey into PETs and keep an eye on Enveil as they continue to turn imagination into reality.
