About Us

TrustLayers was born out of research conducted by Daniel Weitzner, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, and Hal Abelson at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab on information accountability. These researchers believed access control and encryption were not capable of protecting privacy, and that laws and systems were needed to hold institutions accountable for the misuse of personal information. Realizing that enterprises lacked easy to use and actionable systems to protect against data misuse, Daniel partnered up with Adam Towvim to found TrustLayers in 2013. The first version of the product was released in late 2014.
