The company said public sector business areas she will focus on growing include:

  • fraud, waste and abuse prevention

“Experian’s unwavering commitment to the public-sector market made us an intuitive partner for identity and risk-management efforts in the public sector, ” Rivera said, later adding that she will focus on developing partner strategies in an effort to “accelerate our plans.”

“I see a tremendous opportunity for our team to bring quality data and insightful analytics to the expanding list of public-sector customers that are in need of these types of solutions.”
