DOJ’s computer crime chief takes expertise to private concern

Michael DuBose, formerly the Justice Department’s chief of the computer crime and intellectual property section, has joined Kroll, a risk consulting company, as a managing director and leader of the firm’s Cyber Investigations Practice.

Based in Washington, D.C., DuBose will oversee Kroll’s cyber investigations practice within the business intelligence and investigations group, providing comprehensive investigative services for digital forensics, data breach response and complex cyber crimes, according to a Feb. 21 Kroll announcement.

As chief of the DOJ computer crime and intellectual property section, DuBose supervised 40 federal prosecutors and managed some of the biggest investigations and prosecutions involving computer network intrusions, international phishing schemes, botnets, hacktivist groups, copyright piracy, theft of trade secrets, and large-scale data breaches.

DuBose previously served as the Treasury Department’s senior counsel for enforcement. He also served for more than seven years as an assistant U.S. attorney for the district of Maine.

He has been an adjunct professor of law at Georgetown University Law Center for nearly a decade, and has written widely on prosecuting computer crime and the criminal enforcement of intellectual property laws.
