"I try to be thoughtful in choosing the organizations that I work with in today's fast-moving financial technology landscape," said Sallie Krawcheck.  "For me, a company's mission and its commitment to inclusion are as, if not more, important than technology-fit and revenue growth.  BioCatch prioritizes all of these in its mission to protect banks and their customers from digital fraud and financial crime.  I'm looking forward to working closely with Gadi, his team and my fellow board members in BioCatch's mission to fight fraud and stop the financial crimes that threaten consumers' personal security and peace of mind."
