Our Professionals

BRG’s Cyber Security and Investigations group is composed of highly qualified experts who have a diverse range of talents. Team members include former federal law enforcement agents who specialized in cybercrime investigations, network security experts who focus on penetration testing and “red team” assessments, and a former Assistant US Attorney who pioneered cybersecurity enforcement as a federal prosecutor. Our experts spearheaded some of the most complex cyber cases ever pursued—including the investigation and prosecution of the leadership of the prolific hacktivist groups Anonymous and Lulzsec, as well as the owner and operator of Silk Road, a notorious $1.2 billion underground drug website—and have responded to and investigated over 600 cyber attacks against organizations across a range of industries, including in the government, education, financial services, travel and entertainment, technology, media, healthcare, and consumer products sectors.

Our cutting-edge experience and multidisciplinary approach, together with BRG’s global footprint and resources, create an exceptional platform from which we can solve organizations’ most complex cyber problems.

We use decades’ worth of experience and a track record of creative, out-of-the-box thinking to provide solutions that are holistic in philosophy, practical in application, and sensitive to organizations’ operational concerns.
