Brian Pittman’s spotlight on: Richard Torrenzano, Mark Davis, Co-Authors, “Digital Assassination: Protecting Your Reputation, Brand or Business Against Online Attacks“
“If you’re a CEO or celebrity, entrepreneur, politician, journalist or even parent—there is a risk today of digital assassination,” says Richard Torrenzano, who helms NYC’s The Torrenzano Group and has managed some of the most visible global corporate crises of our lifetime.
