Representative “Cyber” Engagement Experience

Incident Response

Handled multiple data breach/data loss investigations on behalf of a major hotel chain. In this capacity helped develop the incident response plan and coordinated multiple vendors, contractors, forensic investigators, malware and threat analysis providers, and auditors to identify and diagnose sophisticated attacks involving hackers who stole information from hundreds of thousands of payment cards, resulting in millions of dollars in fraud loss.

Theft of proprietary data

Provided leadership of forensic team responsible for examining former employee computers for stolen proprietary information. Applied various computer forensic analytics strategies, such as link analysis, metadata, event logs, recovered unallocated e-mail and document fragments, and unstructured text mining and analysis. This analysis established evidentiary proof that the suspects had intentional accessed restricted information and reconstructed their actions. Coordinated expert testimony with outside counsel in order to secure court-ordered access to suspects’ home and new work computers. Further forensic analysis of these computers, confirmed the unauthorized use of the client company’s proprietary information.

Security Program Development

On behalf of a Fortune 100 company, helped develop and implement a vendor security program focused on both the physical and digital security of companies providing services to client where digital information was shared. Coordinated multiple security providers to audit and assess the risk associated with information sharing. Services included: ISO/ IEC 27001:2005 based Policy, Risk Assessments & Threat Analysis, Architecture Design, Penetration Testing, Compliance Audits, Log Management, 24/7 SOC monitoring and SIEM integration, Incident Response, Forensics and Info Security Awareness Training Policy and Procedures, Impact Analysis, Least Privilege, Application Whitelisting, Contingency Plan, Planning Policy and Procedures.


Client was unsure whether highly sensitive identity information was stored on a stolen external hard drive. The loss of this information would require governmental notification. Coordinated a team of investigators and forensic experts in order to determine how the hard drive was stolen, the contents of the information stored, and how that information was being used by the criminals. Forensic analysis – including analyzing the computers’ registry, link files, and system and event logs – was performed to attempt to determine what had been copied from those computers to the stolen drive. Iterative investigation and forensic strategies led to a detailed reconstruction of the events, and analysis of the company's exposure and recommendations for further actions.
