When people hear terms like CALEA, wiretapping, subpoena or production records compliance, they tend to fall back on several misconceived notions about these topics. The truth is, these investigative tools are playing very important roles in saving lives. It’s a Public Safety issue. This session will use several real case studies from well-known law enforcement cases, to discuss how compliance with legal demand requests from law enforcement agencies makes a real difference in saving lives.
With over 30 years of experience, Steve has held various senior positions at telecommunications companies including Qwest, Convergent Communications, IP Services and ADC. In 2001 Steve led separate teams at SS8 Networks to win CALEA contracts for 2.5G, 3G, and GPRS networks at Sprint PCS, Verizon Wireless, and ATT Wireless.
In 2004, Steve formed Subsentio, a Trusted Third Party focusing on Lawful Intercept solutions for telecommunication service providers. From its inception Subsentio’s mission was to help law enforcement catch the bad guy and as a result the business was built around former high ranking Law Enforcement officials at the FBI, DEA, ATF and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
In 2015 Subsentio acquired the Neustar Legal compliance Services Division making it the largest Trusted Third Party in the world with nearly 300 customers in 24 countries around the world. Recently, Steve completed a leverage buy out of the company. Under the terms of the transaction, 100% of the ownership has reverted back to him.
