Date & Time
Tuesday, November 9, 2021, 3:30 PM - 4:00 PM
Patrick J. Lechleitner

Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) is the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel and finance move.

Join HSI Acting Executive Associate Director Patrick Lechleitner to hear how his team of special agents is working in partnership with the HSI Cyber Crimes Center (C3) Cyber Crimes Unit (CCU), to utilize vulnerability detection, undercover platforms and rapidly evolving expertise to significantly disrupt adversaries that exploit the internet to subvert U.S. laws and jeopardize economic, public, and national security. 

We will cover specific case studies of the tools and techniques used in the successful proactive identification, or post-discovery disruption and dismantling, of insider threats, third-party organizations and nation state actors involved in the illicit acquisition of sensitive and restricted technologies and dual use commodities, including new threats that have taken hold during the pandemic.
