About

Mission. Possible.

Tony Lawrence is an entrepreneur, technologist, and prophet of quantum possibilities through his current role as CEO of Light Rider. Tony is a service-disabled veteran of the U.S. Army, who began his career being recruited into the intelligence field by the National Security Agency. Serving in multiple high-profile roles, Tony gained invaluable experience in counterterrorism and threat analysis as well as tracking high-value targets and tactical intelligence collection. His target geo-location efforts produced intelligence reports directly leading to the capture or elimination of terrorists worldwide.

Tony went on to develop unique cyber intelligence collections techniques, many of which are still being used by the nation’s Cyber Mission Forces today.

Having been selected to represent the Director of the National Security Agency, Tony delivered briefings to senior U.S. military officers, White House and congressional members and staffs, U.S. and foreign ambassadors and other key stakeholders on the Director’s behalf, ensuring support and cooperation for intelligence and cyber missions.

Seven years later, Tony established a company focused on developing superior technology for the Department of Defense and the nation. VOR Technology has been recognized as the #6 fastest growing company in Maryland and ranked #296 of 5,000 in INC. Magazine’s fastest growing companies, among many other awards and recognitions. Under Tony’s leadership, VOR’s footprint expanded establishing a working presence across the United States in Florida, Georgia, Utah, Texas, Alaska and the greater Washington D.C area.

With years of R&D and investment in quantum technologies and applications, Tony created Light Rider, a quantum communications company focused on the nexus of quantum-based encryption and communications and Light Fidelity (LiFi) technology. Using LiFi and quantum encryption, Light Rider’s mission is to provide unhackable communications products to the planet at a price they can afford. With product lines covering encrypted storage, secure communications, networking, and infrastructure, Light Rider has already captured the attention of emerging security and communications outlets across the healthcare, military, education, and government contracting verticals.
