John A. Grossman (Massachusetts Attorney General's Office)

"John Grossman is Chief of Attorney General Tom Reilly's Corruption, Fraud and Computer Crime Division ("CFCC"). CFCC is an integrated team of lawyers and investigators that is made up of ten prosecutors, thirteen Massachusetts State Troopers, seven financial investigators, a computer forensics expert, victim witness advocates and support staff. Our mission is to assure that law enforcement works for businesses and individuals who play by the rules, and so we focus on (a) "corporate community prosecution" - responding to the priorities of the corporate community: insider theft, computer security and theft of intellectual property; (b) high priority consumer protection cases - fiduciary embezzlement, internet crimes - particularly those targeting children, and immigration cons and other multi-victim swindles; and (c) public corruption cases, whether they involve officials betraying the public trust or companies and individuals stealing from the government. We believe that in order to accomplish our goals, we cannot just prosecute cases. We must be involved in corporate associations and public education efforts that promote the prevention of and failing that, efficient response to, white collar and computer crime, we must work with other law enforcement agencies to leverage the expertise that we have developed by offering training and informal consultation, and we must draft and promote legislation where the current statutes fall short.

"Mr. Grossman also served as the President of Infragard - Boston and is a member of the Commonwealth's Enterprise Security Board. Mr. Grossman has been an Assistant Attorney General since 1995 and prior to his current position, was a prosecutor in the Special Investigations and Narcotics Division and Public Integrity Division of the Attorney General's Office and ran that office's High Tech and Computer Crimes Division. Before joining the A.G.'s Office, Mr. Grossman was a litigation associate at the New York City law firm of Debevoise & Plimpton and a law clerk to Judge Bailey Aldrich of the First Circuit Court of Appeals. He is a summa cum laude graduate of Boston University School of Law." [1]
