He is also a founding consultant to Triopoly (now TruArx), specializing in PCI compliance solutions. For almost 10 years, Mr. Rasch lead the U.S. Department of Justice’s efforts to investigate and prosecute computer crime investigations, forensics and electronic evidence laws. He investigated and prosecuted the earliest computer crime cases including those of Kevin Poulson, Kevin Mantic, and Robert. T. Morris.

Mr. Rasch has written and lectured extensively on computer crimes, trademark, and trade secret issues on the Internet, and has been featured in USA Today, The New York Times, NBC Nightly News, ABC’s Nightline, PBS’ Technopolitics, CNBC, and NPR as an expert on computer law and policy.
