HILLSBORO, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SureID, Inc., the market leader in high-assurance identities, is proud to announce its latest executive hire, Justin P. Oberman. Oberman joins SureID as vice president of identity strategy.
Oberman brings decades of experience in identity security, including as one of the first employees and earliest leaders at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) following 9/11, where he served as the first assistant administrator for Transportation Threat Assessment and Credentialing. At SureID, Oberman will focus on leading industry discourse on identity assurance with a focus on enterprise accounts, the digital economy and other emerging markets. Oberman also will drive the adoption of SureID’s newest identity technologies, including the SureID Certified™ and SureID Certified Edge™ solutions.
“Justin’s unique leadership role at TSA and his deep understanding of today’s security requirements further strengthen our leadership in identity assurance,” said Steve Larson, CEO and founder, SureID.

Oberman later worked at L-1 Identity Solutions and as a consultant to more than a dozen companies in the aviation and aerospace industries. He has also helped several startup companies in the security, transportation and supply chain management sectors.

SureID’s comprehensive offering is best-positioned to serve customers and I’m proud to support its mission.”
