Nie joins cybersecurity startup Aura


Ling-Ling Nie will be leaving Georgia Tech after serving for three years as legal counsel and vice president for ethics and compliance.

Ling-Ling Nie has announced that she will join Aura, a leading provider of proactive all-in-one digital security solutions for consumers, and will leave Georgia Tech after serving for three years as General Counsel and Vice President for ethics and compliance.

Nie joined Georgia Tech from Panasonic Corporation of North America in 2019 and served as a member of the President’s cabinet. She provided leadership, oversight and strategic direction for legal affairs, ethics, compliance, affiliates and risk management, and ensured that the Institute maintained a high standard of integrity and public trust. Nie restructured the general counsel’s office, created Georgia Tech’s ethics and compliance program, and launched the institute-wide ethics-first campaign. Nie has also served on the strategic plan steering committee, the LOVE GT steering committee, and the Institute’s Covid-19 working group. In 2021, she received the Outstanding General Counsel Award from the Atlanta Business Chronicle in the Major Legal Department category.

“I am very grateful for Ling-Ling’s service at Georgia Tech,” said President Ángel Cabrera. “She has been a transformational leader, building a modern, high performing and strategic legal, compliance and risk management operation for the Institute, and providing a clear and firm voice as we continue to build and cultivate a climate and a strong ethical culture. “

Nie will join Aura as Deputy General Counsel, Compliance Officer and Head of Government Affairs. Aura’s mission is to create a safer Internet for everyone with an easy-to-use, all-in-one digital security platform for consumers. Their proactive security solutions protect every part of life online.

Nie’s last day at Tech is Friday, February 4. The search for Georgia Tech’s new general counsel and vice president for ethics and compliance will be chaired by Frank Neville, senior vice president of strategic initiatives and chief of staff. Kathleen Gosden, chief student and academic affairs counsel in Georgia Tech’s general counsel’s office, will serve on an interim basis until the position is filled.
