SpaceCurve of Seattle, WA announced on February 18 that former IBM executive, serial entrepreneur, and privacy and regulatory expert John Bliss will join its Advisory Board. Previously Bliss was Chief Compliance Officer at Strevus and also founded Captimo, whose assets were recently acquired by Seattle-based Atigeo where John serves as General Counsel and Chief Privacy Officer.
“John is an industry recognized thought leader and strategist at the intersection of law, technology, government affairs, and privacy. As an advisor he will be a tremendous asset to SpaceCurve bringing significant technical knowledge combined with practical experience with privacy-related legal and regulatory requirements worldwide, and how they apply to business and technology,” said Dane Coyer, SpaceCurve CEO.
Before founding Captimo, John was General Counsel, Chief Privacy Officer, and VP/Government Relations for Systems Research and Development (SRD), a Las Vegas-based enterprise software identity analytics company acquired by IBM.
John remained with IBM after the SRD acquisition as Privacy Strategist for IBM’s Entity Analytic Solutions group.
John holds a J.D. from Georgetown University.
