Former FBI Cyber Crimes Special Agent

Chris Tarbell is one of the most successful cyber security law enforcement officials of all time. Over a 17-year-long FBI career, he led the tracking and arrest of two of the most infamous figures in cyber space: Sabu, who was at one point the most influential hacker in the world, and Dread Pirate Roberts, who was later convicted for his involvement with Silk Road.

He oversaw high-profile investigations including the Boston Marathon Bombing before being elevated to Deputy Director of the FBI in 2016.

Having overseen the government response to the OPM cyber-attack, she is able to discuss the diverse nature of the cyber threat—from nation states to the dark web to “hacktivists”—as well as new types of attacks, the implication of the Internet of Things, and what companies should do now to get ahead of it all
