Kim has been a director in PwC’s cyber investigations group for the last two years, giving her invaluable insight into the cyber forensics world. Prior to that, she was a prosecutor at the Department of Justice, where she successfully prosecuted and convicted Albert Gonzalez. In case you don’t know, Mr. Gonzalez was responsible for the TJX, Dave and Buster’s, Heartland and several other prominent card-related breaches over the span of five or six years.
