Hank Asher is a millionaire businessman and the founder of several companies that retrieve huge amounts of electronic information about individuals. In 2003, he was hired by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to help them identify potential terrorists. This has been highly controversial, largely because of Asher's alleged past links to drug smuggling.

In 1992, Asher founded Database Technologies, which later merged with ChoicePoint. In 1999, he founded Seisint Inc.. Seisint was sold to Reed Elsevier in August 2004 for $775 million. Asher reportedly received $148 million and $250 million respectively. [1]
