Cybercrime expert named Symantec advisor
Silicon Valley / San Jose Business Journal
Symantec Inc. on Tuesday named cybercrime expert Adam Palmer an advisor.
Mountain View-based Symantec (NASDAQ:SYMC) called Palmer a "pioneer in the field of cybercrime law and its enforcement, bringing more than a decade of experience in private industry and government service."
Palmer was formerly a cybercrime prosecutor and legal director for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Palmer "will lead the charge to spread awareness about cybercrime and help Norton strengthen its efforts to make the online world safer" through education and outreach to law enforcement and other organizations, the company said.
Palmer joins Symantec from the .ORG Top Level Domain Registry. He has served as an instructor in cybercrime prosecution related courses for the National District Attorney's Association, the National Association of Attorneys General and The National Law Center for Children. He also taught the first Internet Crimes Against Children course through the University of Mississippi Law School.
