Chris Tarbell
Cyber Security Expert

Chris Tarbell is a former FBI special agent and current Director of Cyber Security and Investigations at Berkeley Research Group. Tarbell has been called one of the most successful cyber security law enforcement officials of all time. He is the man responsible for infiltrating the hacker group Anonymous and taking down the notorious dark web drug trafficking site Silk Road, called “the most sophisticated and extensive criminal marketplace on the Internet.” 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. With 17 years in law enforcement–including time in the FBI’s preeminent cyber crime squad–and extremely rare insight into the minds of the hacker community, Tarbell is one of the nation’s preeminent voices on cyber security, and the man that gives even the most notorious cybercriminals nightmares.
