After law school, he was hired by the legendary Robert Morgenthau as an assistant district attorney in the New York County District Attorney's Office. While there, John prosecuted international cybercrime, virtual currency money laundering, identity theft, and street crimes.

John brings these skills and experience to the private sector, where he now helps organizations and individuals navigate today’s risks.
