Tom Talleur retired as an Advanced Technology Programs Executive from NASA in 1999, capping a 31-year career as a federal agent with the U.S. Government.  He’s internationally known as a subject matter expert on cyber and novel technology crime.  Receiving awards from the White House and the Attorney General of the United States for his work, he’s been a keynote speaker to Congress, companies, federal agencies, associations, and training seminars around the world. He’s also an analyst and commentator for television, radio, and print media about technology crime and security matters.

Tom’s work on Internet crimes began in the early 1980’s — almost 15 years before the Internet became the worldwide communication system we use today.  His deep, historic perspective of the nature and culture of the Internet is of vast value to the recipients of his work.

After his public service career, Tom served as a Managing Director at KPMG Forensic and Senior Vice President at Marsh-McLennan. He also serves as an Adjunct Professor in Cyber Forensics at Stevenson University.

Novel Technology Crime Is The Trend

Cybercrime has been “old news” for Tom for a long time. Since 1995, he’s been focusing on how novel technology crimes will impact space missions of the future and humankind. These are crimes featuring exploitations of nanotechnology, biotechnology, human genomics, intelligent systems, and robotics. Human convergence with novel technologies by 2030 ensures a rich crime climate throughout the future.

Tom curates the Forensic Futurology page on Facebook where he posts commentary on media stories and technology crime trends. He is a graduate of the Naval War College, Newport, R.I. and the Federal Executive Institute, Charlottesville, VA.
