Founded by a cybersecurity expert
John Lucich is the Founder & CEO of the Network Security Group, where he has assessed, designed, and managed mid to large-size networks for corporations, government agencies, and casinos nationwide, for more than 20 years. He is also a retired State Criminal Investigator from the Organized Crime Racketeering & Corruption Bureau of the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office, Division of Criminal Justice, where he was directly involved in conducting high-tech crime investigations and computer forensics since 1988.
Mr. Lucich served five years as an adjunct professor of computer science at Felician College, and is a nationally recognized expert, lecturer, and published author on network security and computer forensics. In the early-2000s, he served as the keynote speaker for Network Associates, RSA, and Protegrity, at more than 50 computer security seminars throughout the U.S. and Canada. He also taught a cyber-crimes course at the New Jersey Attorney General’s academy in Sea Girt, for more than a decade.
Mr. Lucich appeared as an expert on Fox News and CNN for nine years, speaking on topics of technology, network intrusions, and ransomware. He was a Keynote speaker with General Colin Powell and Bill Gates at CA World 96, where he addressed computer security issues.
He has worked undercover for the US military and had identified individuals involved in military computer intrusions, and testified as an e-mail expert in the case of a New York State Judge who had lied about sending an e-mail to then-President Bill Clinton. He was also an expert witness against a New Jersey police officer, in a trial where the officer stood accused of taking a computer as a bribe. That officer was found guilty and removed from the force.
Mr. Lucich was the first state law enforcement officer to testify before the U.S. Congress in 1993 on computer crime issues. In February 1999, he testified as a high-tech crimes expert witness before the New Jersey State Commission of Investigation, as part of the state hearings on computer crimes in Trenton. In 2016, Mr. Lucich and his staff investigated a network intrusion and identified the hacker, a Chinese national, who was later indicted by federal prosecutors. A subsequent civil trial awarded the victim company more than $7 million in damages.
The Network Security Group is staffed by passionate network & cybersecurity experts, offering 24/7 round-the-clock monitoring, incident response and protection from evolving cyber threats including hackers, malicious insiders and destructive malware.
