Cambridge, MA (PressExposure) May 17, 2013 -- Jon Monsarrat is bring the same consulting services to fight cybercrime that he has used to advise top executives from General Electric and Citigroup. Through previous consulting jobs, he helped executives at GE Trade put together an import / export offset program to help them make sales worldwide. And for Citigroup he worked to design for them an "active bank system". Now he is bringing that power to expose cyberbullies, with a twist: two new patented technologies. The previous press release "Jon Monsarrat, $160 Million DotCom Icon, to Expose 100 Cyberbullies" dated May 8, 2013, was sent out with incorrect information. First, due to a miscommunication when the press release was being written, the venture is not part of Monsarrat's Hard Data Factory, and Rickland Powel l is not a contact. Instead the service is part of Monsarrat Consulting, his private consulting practice, and does not involve Rickland Powell. Second, due to a separate miscommunication, the press release stated that the new venture launched with partnerships. That was in error. The new venture does not launch with any partnerships.
Jon Monsarrat said, "Cyberbullies harass and publish lies about their victims in an attempt to destroy their lives, and they think they're safe because they're anonymous. After working for the executives of Citigroup and General Electric, now it's time to turn my attention to help those who have no power, the victims of cybercrime."
Cyberbullying can damage reputatations, destroying family, friend, romantic, and business relationships, but it can also lead to suicide. Every year thousands of people commit suicide that can be traced in part or in whole to cyberbullying. Jon Monsarrat has worked to prevent suicide before by running the Boston Monster March on behalf ot The Samaritans. The Monster March was a 2009 carnival, concert, and charity walk on Boston City Hall Plaza that attracted 4,000 people.
