TCH Annual Conference

Dan Larkin

Mr. Larkin is currently the Director of Fraud Prevention and MY CSO for C&IB within the Enterprise Fraud Group at PNC. Prior to this, Mr. Larkin served in the FBI for more than 24 years and established the first Cyber Fusion Unit for the Federal Government, enabling Govt/Law Enforcement to effectively co-locate with Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from industry & academia. This Unit substantially enhances resource sharing (personnel, technology & intelligence) to the mutual benefit of all participants. Private Sector partners include numerous financial services organizations, telecommunications, technology, and e-commerce. Law Enforcement partners include a growing list of Federal, State & Local agencies, as well as international investigators from more than a dozen countries.

Prior to that, Mr. Larkin served as the FBI Unit chief of the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3). Mr. Larkin expanded the focus of this project to include hundreds of SMEs from industry & academia as major contributors of both intelligence and exceptional analytical skills. He also directed the development and successful completion of numerous international cyber-crime initiatives, in which more than 500 arrests and millions of dollars in seizures were accomplished.

Mr. Larkin also developed one of the first High Tech Crime Task Forces in the United States. This unique collaboration of assets also led to the development of the first national Public/Private Alliance to identify and combat cyber crime, known as the National Cyber Forensics & Training Alliance (NCFTA). Mr. Larkin also co-authored the FBI National Cyber Crime strategy in 2002.
