Big Blockchain Intelligence Group Inc. says it has hired a former U.S. Homeland Security special agent to head its forensics division.
The Vancouver-based company says Robert Whitaker, a former Homeland Security Investigations supervisory special agent, will serve as its director of forensics and investigations.
Whitaker's responsibilities will include the global rollout of the company's QLUE.io product, which allows clients to access information they require within any blockchain.
The company says Whitaker's U.S. government agency and other relationships will help increase market penetration and increase the number of early adopters of the new technology.
CEO Lance Morginn says in a statement that Whitaker is an obvious fit for the position and he'll provide the company the opportunity to become the industry leader.
