He has a master’s degree in criminal justice from DeSales University and a bachelor’s degree in sociology and criminal justice from Moravian University.

“Joe is an ideal addition to our digital and cybersecurity team,” said Dan Nardello, chairman and CEO of Nardello & Co. “His arrival represents strategic expansion in the area of digital investigations in response to growing demand.”

The firm also added James Aquilina, a former cybercrime prosecutor, to its advisory board.

“I’m thrilled to share that I’ve joined Nardello & Co. as Managing Director of Cyber,” Pochron said in a LinkedIn post. “I’m honored to have the opportunity to join this prestigious firm and work alongside such an impressive team.”

Nardello & Co. was founded in 2003 and provides services in anti-fraud and corruption investigations, due diligence, litigation and arbitration support, compliance, and political risk and strategic intelligence, among other areas. The firm supports law firms, financial institutions, large corporations, NGOs, governments, academic institutions, and family offices.

Nardello & Co. has seven offices across the US, UK, Dubai, Hong Kong, and Singapore. The firm has over 100 employees, according to LinkedIn.
