'You Can Feel Secure with Me': Kevin Spacey Joins Cybersecurity Firm
Everyone who’s heard of Kevin Spacey knows and loves him as Frank Underwood in “House of Cards,” but many of you may be hearing for the first time today that “the President” recently became the face of an increasingly vital cause.
In addition to his role as chairman of Hollywood’s Relativity Studios, Spacey has just become the spokesman of cybersecurity firm WISeKey.
He and WISeKey CEO Carlos Moreira sat down with Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this morning to discuss the new venture.
“I’ve always been fascinated by this particular space,” the Oscar winner said.
"Now that I am the chairman of the studio," Spacey continued, “the Sony hacks last year” were “a wake-up call for anybody, not just in my business but for any business.”
Where WISeKey comes in, Moreira explained, is by providing encryption and “identity” for some of the “50 billion devices” estimated to be connected online.
“If you want to protect your content and you want to protect your intellectual property, now it’s my responsibility to make sure we do that,” said Spacey.
“You can feel secure with me,” he joked.
