Anthony Lawrence, Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), VOR Technology and Light Rider; will speak at IQT NYC 2023.

Talk 2.1: Why Entropy is more valuable than BITCOIN

Anthony (Tony) Lawrence is the founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of VOR Technology and Light Rider, and a leader in the cyber and communications security fields. Mr. Lawrence is a service-disabled U.S. army veteran who began his career being recruited at 17-years-old into the intelligence field by the National Security Agency (NSA). Serving in multiple high-profile roles, Mr. Lawrence gained invaluable experience in counterterrorism and threat analysis as well as tracking high-value targets and tactical intelligence collection. His cyber target geo-location efforts produced intelligence reports directly leading to the capture or elimination of terrorists worldwide. Because of his skill and experience, Mr. Lawrence was ultimately selected to serve as the lead corporate briefer for NSA and the newly established U.S. Cyber Command. He briefed hundreds of audiences on the organizations’ operations, missions and capabilities.

In 2012, following his time in service, Mr. Lawrence established VOR Technology. VOR has supported more than 50 cybersecurity and related contracts and has employed upwards of 300 personnel. VOR has grown into a highly successful, nationally recognized company focused on providing superior tactical mission support to the Department of Defense and other U.S. Government departments and agencies. Mr. Lawrence’s accomplishments have garnered national media attention, and his experience continues to lend itself to VOR’s objectives.
Mr. Lawrence went on to establish the quantum communications company Light Rider in 2018. Light Rider develops state-of-the-art entropy distribution Light Fidelity (LiFi) systems and other quantum capabilities designed to secure communications from the consumer level to enterprise environments. By marrying both quantum entropy and LiFi technology, Light Rider’s growing suite of products is poised to revolutionize networks and prepare the world for the arrival of the quantum Internet, and beyond.
Mr. Lawrence continues to pave the way through his companies’ innovations and support to ongoing national defense missions and plans to expand the reach of his technologies to contribute to academia and underserved communities.
