LexisNexis Risk Solutions Strategic Client Relations Director for Federal Law Enforcement Michael Breslin has been selected by the U.S. Secret Service to advise the agency’s investigations team on how it can better use technology to get ahead of criminals.
The newly formed 16-member Cyber Investigations Advisory Board will provide the Secret Service’s Office of Investigations with outside strategic input for the agency’s investigative mission, including insights on the latest trends in cybercrime, financial crime, technology and investigative techniques.
Breslin will draw on his 23 years of federal law enforcement experience working with the Secret Service and his expertise in transnational cyber and financial crime investigations, to help the agency combat the ongoing threats of cyber-enabled crimes.
“Public-private partnerships like the CIAB are very helpful as the government contends with rampant COVID-19 related identity thefts, fraud schemes and network intrusions,” Breslin said. “Agencies must arm themselves with a layered defense that can detect the full spectrum of possible attacks and is future-proofed against evolving threats.”
