LAS VEGAS, Nevada – Company Alarm, a business identity theft protection startup, announced today that Ralph Gagliardi, the head of one of the nation’s only law enforcement units dedicated to business identity theft, has joined the company’s Board of Advisors.
Based in Colorado, Gagliardi boasts more than 29 years of law enforcement experience. Currently, he leads a four-person team to combat business identity theft, making him one of the nation’s leading experts on the topic.
“Ralph is truly one of the most knowledgeable sources of information on business identity theft,” said Company Alarm Founder Andy Pham. “His experience with this crime is not theoretic. More so than just about anyone else in this country, he has seen business identity theft up close and personal. He understands the intricacies of the scam and has seen the havoc it can wreak on businesses and their owners. Company Alarm is grateful to have his guidance as we develop solutions to protect businesses from identity theft.”
Gagliardi is a subject matter expert in complex fraud and organized crime investigations. His current focus is on criminal activity that spans statewide, national and international jurisdictions. The unit he leads investigates crimes that include business email compromise, wire fraud and many others where technology is used in the commission of a crime. Gagliardi’s team regularly conducts cybercrime and identity theft education for private and public sectors focusing on best practices, prevention and awareness. Gagliardi assists in the development of policy and legislative efforts pertaining to identity theft and fraud and cybercrime. He is a certified fraud examiner (CFE) and a member of the National Association of Certified Fraud Examiners and local Colorado CFE chapter.
“I admire what Andy is trying to accomplish with Company Alarm,” Gagliardi said. “As a victim himself of business identity theft, he knows what’s at stake. I’m very excited that he’s decided to use his experiences to try to help other businesspeople avoid his fate. Business identity theft is a growing problem in the United States, but it remains largely unknown and misunderstood. I’m happy to help Company Alarm educate the public and protect business owners nationwide.”
