Searchable.com was welcomed this past Monday, June 11, at the Sacramento, CA CyberDefense Summit for Non-Profits and Veterans as a new mobile platform that will be provided free of charge to veteran owned-businesses and their community.
The summit, part of a larger series sponsored by Union Bank in conjunction with the California Department of General Services, addressed and educated veteran organizations and non-profits about the serious problems resulting from cyber-crimes.
“The Cyber Defense Summit is an important step in the introduction of our platform to the veteran community. Searchable.com is delivering a well needed solution to all of those who have served our country, abroad or at home, along with their family members,” said Founder and CEO Frank Rice.
A study from the AARP shows that veterans are twice as likely as others to fall victim to cybercrime. Meanwhile, according to National Cyber Task Force, local non-profit organizations also have a higher likelihood of being targeted by cybercriminals pursuing valuable data about members, staff, donors and volunteers.
“At a time when data practices and security as a whole are being called into question, Searchable.com gives individuals control over what data they wish to share with businesses, brands and organizations, supporting user rights and privacy,” said Managing Director Lauren Straus.
Searchable.com introduced its technology to the several veteran organizations and non-profits in attendance. Among those was Vet Matchmaking, a non-profit partnered with Searchable.com to provide the greater veteran community a single point of access to service organizations and benefits from local businesses.
Searchable.com is a technology startup founded and based in Thousand Oaks, California. Along with the consumer and business apps, Searchable.com has other innovative products in development that will reinforce the company's position as a pioneer in the interactive mobile commerce platform space.
