NuData CEO Selected as Pacific EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Finalist

We’d like to take a moment to toot our own horn – we’re pleased to announce that Michel Giasson, CEO of NuData Security, has been nominated as a finalist in the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2015 Award for the Pacific region. Michel is one of three finalists in the category of Innovative Technology – Financial Services. Michel shares the finalist spot with Lisa Shields of Hyperwallet Systems Inc. and Hamed Shahbazi of TIO Networks Corp. Michel is a founding member of NuData Security who together with our CTO Christopher Bailey pioneered emerging technologies to develop NuDetect, a truly frictionless fraud detection platform that uses machine learning and user behavior analytics to determine friend from foe. The EY Entrepreneur of the Year is officiated by Ernst and Young and is in its 22nd year.  A panel of independent judges select entrepreneurs based on their vision, leadership, innovation, financial success, personal integrity, and work in giving back to their communities. For more information, you can read the full announcement EY Canada here. On Tuesday night, Michel got to share the spotlight with his fellow nominees Lisa and Hamed at the Finalist Celebration in at Leone this past Tuesday night for the Building Your Brand Through Fashion gala held in their honor.  Some tough-looking competition! It’s an honour being nominated with industry members of such calibre.
