SecureMySocial Issued 5th US Patent For Social Media Security Technology

I am happy (and proud) to announce that SecureMySocial, a cybersecurity company that I co-founded with Shira Rubinoff, has been issued its fifth United States patent for social media security. The patent was issued by the United States Patent Office on September 6th, 2022, with a priority date going back over a decade, to June of 2012.

Patent number US 11,438,334 entitled Systems and Methods for Securing Social Media for Users and Businesses and Rewarding for Enhancing Security, discloses a robust invention that addresses the risks that posts to social media may pose to businesses and individuals alike.

The granting of this patent follows the patent office’s granting of four other related patents going back to the same priority date in June of 2012.

Those patents, all of which are entitled Systems and Methods for Securing Social Media for Users and Businesses and Rewarding for Enhances Security, bear the following numbers and issue dates:

1. US 9,374,374 –  Granted in June of 2016.

2. US 9,813,419 –  Granted in November of 2017.

3. US 10,084,787 – Granted in September of 2018.

4. US 10,771,464 – Granted in September 2020.

5. US 11,438,334 – Granted in September of 2022.

All of the patents can be read by visiting my Google Scholar page.

For those not yet aware, SecureMySocial, which has been included in the CyberSecurity 500 multiple times, protects businesses and people from the risks of potentially problematic social media usage by warning users of social media in real time if they are making posts that could harm themselves or their employers. If so authorized, it can also automatically delete bad posts. By offering SecureMySocial to employees, businesses may reduce their exposure to bad publicity, human resource issues, lawsuits, and regulatory fines.
