Think your electronic information is safe? Think again. In today’s environment, every organization’s private and confidential information faces vulnerability to attack. The cyber-thieves targeting your data are sophisticated, brilliant, devious, and technologically advanced. They are modern-day spies. Robert Hanssen, one of the first and most notorious of these new cyber-spies, supported a 22-year-long espionage career by exploiting computer system security weaknesses—ultimately selling American secrets to Russia for more than $1.4 million in cash and diamonds.
In what promises to be one of the most exciting keynote presentations of Legaltech, come hear Eric O’Neill—inspiration for the hit movie Breach—describe how he solved a string of cyber-crimes and took down Robert Hanssen. Eric will use his real-life spy stories to show us how lawyers can deploy careful diligence, counter-espionage techniques, and restraint in social media to help minimize cyber-threats. Whether under attack from spies, hackers, hacktivists, or trusted insiders, every organization can learn from Eric’s experience.
Eric O’Neill formerly served in the FBI as a counterterrorism and counterintelligence operative. Graduating from the FBI’s Intelligence Program, Eric worked as a special surveillance group field operative tasked to surveil and monitor foreign, national, and domestic terrorists and spies. Eric currently runs The Georgetown Group, a premier investigative and security consultancy, where he specializes in counterintelligence operations, investigations into economic espionage, cyber security penetrations, internal investigations, and catching the trusted insider. Eric is an honors graduate of Auburn University. He earned his Juris Doctor degree from The George Washington University Law School, also with honors.
