Andre Brission (Co-founder, Vice President Business Development)
Andre Brisson, co-founder of Whitenoise Laboratories
Inc., was born in Ottawa, Ontario Canada in 1958. He spent
his formative years growing up in California and had an
active interest in school, tennis and music. He earned
academic distinctions such as the California Gold Seal
Bearer and the National Scholastic Federation.
Andre returned to Canada to finish his honors degree
in Psychology at Carleton University with some study at
the University of British Columbia. Subsequently, he returned
to California where he got an MBA with a minor in international
business law at City University in San Diego.
Experiences led him into writing a book on managing Workers
Compensation and Liability Insurance and the development
of a software program to do so called the Workers Compensation
Consultant. Andre founded and ran a small company called
International Business Saveware Inc.
During a development phase of IBS, it was necessary to
make the Worker’s Compensation Consultant software accessible
from the Internet. Good fortune led him to a programmer
par excellence, Steve Boren. The creative sparks flew
immediately and this led to a partnership and collaborative
effort that morphed into a co-founded company Whitenoise
During this time a large array of technologies have been
developed and tested. Of particular note are Whitenoise
Superkey Encryption, Strong Crack Protection, and BSB
Utilities. Proof-of-concepts were created in conjunction
with the British Columbia Institute of Technology Industry
Sponsored Student Projects.
Today he continues to pursue easy to use security solutions
for use in wireless, telematic, media streaming, copy
protection, and financial transaction sectors. Whitenoise
Laboratories Inc. has recently been invited to be a Symbian
Platinum Partner member. Symbian is the world’s standard
operating system for cell phones and is currently found
on about 80% of the world’s wireless telephones.
His current goal is to try to create a security cluster
in the Vancouver, British Columbia area and to have Whitenoise
become an accepted standard and improvement to the existing
