Every member of our executive management team has demonstrated such qualities, as is evident from their achievements in their law enforcement careers. They all started their investigative careers as Police Officers in the New York Police Department. Some of them rose through the ranks and became three-star bureau chiefs, while some chose the investigative path, retiring as detective commanders and highly decorated detectives from the most elite investigative units within the NYPD. Their track records and competency are well documented and span their entire law enforcement careers. They all joined forces under Cyber Diligence to provide our clients with the same level of investigative excellence they provided to the public.

Our executive team’s fields of expertise include technology investigations, digital forensics, IT security assessments, insider abuse detection and investigation.
