Since time immemorial, society has found a way of dealing with criminals, by creating systems that alienate ‘bad souls’ from the rest of the world. In today’s world, technology has been the means through which companies like Securus Technology protect the interests of the majority.At the top of Securus Technologies is Richard (Rick) Smith, who not only stands out as the corporation’s owner but also as the President and CEO.
